Information for Incoming Students
West Virginia University is a truly international university. With students from over 100 different countries, representing all of our fields of study, we strive to engage all student to be truly global citizens.
Office of Global Affairs (OGA) encourages all exchange students to live
on our downtown campus as this is where the majority of your course work will be
and its closer to the main street in downtown Morgantown, several of the student
body activities take place on the downtown campus.
Students that are not required to live in WVU on-campus facilities, I would encourage you to look at the WVU operated apartment facilities as opposed to private off-campus facilities.
Dining & MealsDining Halls are located in many of WVU's dormitories and your meal plan will work at all of these. If you are staying in a WVU Residence Hall, then you are automatically enrolled in the meal plan, and it is automatically applied to your student account.

International Student Health Insurance
All students at West Virginia University are required to have health insurance. WVU's
preferred provider is
AETNA Student Health. If you do not have AETNA student health, then you
must complete a waiver; more information can be found
NOTE: Your waiver will not be accepted unless your insurance has the same coverage as the AETNA Student Health policy.
