You will need to find housing for the time you are in Seattle. We recommend that you make housing arrangements before
you arrive. If you can’t make arrangements before you arrive, or your housing will not be available when you arrive, please arrange for temporary housing
The International & English Language Programs office does not make housing arrangements.
However, this site has some information to help you.
