Yes, all people who are living in the U.S., regardless of immigration status or citizenship, should be counted where they live and sleep “most of the time.”
Foreign students living and attending college in the United States should be counted at the on- or off-campus residence where they live and sleep most of the time.
One limited exception is that citizens of foreign countries who are briefly visiting the United States for vacation or business on April 1, 2020 will not be counted.
