Living in the United States
The Office of Public Affairs and Communciations hosts find.nd.edu, a resource for where to go, what to do in the Notre Dame community; it also includes housing information. Additional resources listed below are intended to help international students and their dependents navigate their time in the United States.
For more than 50 years, International Student and Scholar Affairs (ISSA) at the University of Notre Dame has paired international students with members of the local community, allowing participants to learn more about different cultures, traditions, and languages.
For the average incoming freshman, leaving friends and family to go to college for the first time is often an overwhelming experience. But for international students, these nerves and uncertainties are amplified, as they must travel longer distances and face an entirely new culture and language.
That’s where the Notre Dame International Ambassadors step in.
