Michigan State University

Student life at Michigan State University

MSU’s campus is big. Really big. But once you're there you'll quickly discover that the campus is like a small, walkable city—with friendly people, park like green spaces, a river running through it and neighborhoods where you will feel right at home. It won’t take you long to find your favorite spots to study, eat and relax with friends.


MSU is home to one of the largest residence hall systems in the United States.  Students who want to live on campus will live in the residence halls, usually in a shared room with an American student. They will have to select a meal plan.

Many international students prefer to find private accommodation off campus. MSU have many good resources to help new students you get started.

Student activities and support

A dedicated Study Abroad team assist students with all their needs pre-arrival, during, and post-departure. MSU has over 550 registered Student Organizations, which means there’s something for everyone!

There are several different sports offered throughout the school year. Club sports are student organizations which compete with other club sport teams outside of MSU and study abroad students are welcome to get involved!
