Guest Policy

As New York City moves closer to fully reopening and massive vaccination programs continue, International House has made the careful decision to reinstate its resident member guest policy. All guests must be accompanied by an I-House resident member, be fully vaccinated, and adhere to I-House safety measures and protocols. 


Washing machines are available onsite 24/7 in both the South and the North Buildings, and use a card-based, cashless system. Contact our Facilities Office with any questions about using the laundry facilities.


Create a Work Request Ticket on our ticket system, Upkeep, for assistance with maintenance issues, including the installation/removal of air conditioners.

Policies and Guidelines

Help ensure a safe environment at I-House.


The founders of International House envisioned a dynamic community of scholars from all over the world. Individual rooms were intentionally smaller so that residents would seek out the public spaces and meet each other in comfortable settings.

Below are maps of the House’s public spaces, where, as the founders had dreamed, residents can talk about their similarities and differences–to share stories, participate in programs together, and celebrate the disintegration of prejudices and other barriers to understanding.
