I am active in the International Club on campus as well as the Chinese Student Association, and I have had a chance to travel to some of the big cities on the US east coast, including Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, as well as New York. You can drive to these cities, but there are buses and trains, too, that make travel easy. We’ve seen the Statue of Liberty, small towns, and historic sites – all of which make America a special place. My friends and I visit nearby Chinese supermarkets and cook food from home, so we are able to combine some new things in the USA with familiar comforts from our home country.

A Safe Place to Call Home

Whether you are living on the Monmouth University main campus or in the surrounding seaside community, your safety is our priority. The Monmouth University Police Department consists of 20 full-time officers and detectives, as well as safety officers, dispatchers, and traffic attendants. University police officers patrol the campus and off-campus residential facilities, provide informational programming, and manage our emergency alert systems. The Global Education Office also serves as an important point of contact for you and your family, should any issues arise. Our friendly and approachable staff is here to help provide a safe and secure environment.

International Student Housing

As an international student, you will receive support finding housing both on and off campus that is right for your needs. International students may apply to live in on-campus or University-sponsored housing, however most graduate students live in off-campus housing typically within walking distance of campus. Off-campus housing is usually within 15 minutes of the University, and sponsored University housing offers complementary shuttle rides to and from campus for students.

We are here to help you explore your housing options.
