I have got admission and visa for University of Houston but I want to first go to New York on that visa for staying there with my relatives for a week and then come to Houston.
I done know if there is any immigration rule that restricts me to first got to Houston and the university name is mentioned on my visa. I don’t want to get into trouble. so want to know that out.
Plus I havent got accommodation as yet. I want to know whether I should apply for the on campus housing but i want to find a cheaper option as i m short of funds, I have heard that off campus housing becomes difficult as there is poor transportation means in Houston…..guys plz comment..its urgent.

Yes, you can go to New York and then fly to Houston.
For Fall 2011 – One student went to LA, then after 2 weeks he was going to attend college in Alabama.
CBP officer asked his flight ticket from Los Angles to Alabama.
On campus or off campus housing depends on your university and location. You have to get answers from current students at University of Houston.
Always remember – Safety is the first priority. Don’t find an apartment in high crime area to save $100 per month.
