I-House residents:

As a member of the global network of International Houses Worldwide (IHWW), our I-House, like I-Houses everywhere, provides students from various countries and cultures, an opportunity to live and learn together in a community of mutual respect, understanding, and international friendship.

I-Housers create their own community experience by getting involved in an active, democratic resident-run Community Council open to all 154 residents from over 45 different countries. Students gain professional development and credentials to become multicultural community leaders.

Global Education in I-House enhances Residence Life through intentional support of students’ global initiatives, cultural celebrations, and intercultural growth.
