Application Process & Admission

Should I complete an Academic Year or Summer application?

January 23, 2023

If your stay begins in the summer and extends through September, or if your stay begins in the Spring and extends into May, please complete an Academic Year application. If your stay is ONLY through May-August, and does not extend into September, please complete a Summer term application.

I am scheduled to start my program/internship in New York, but I have not received the formal letter from my school or organization. Can I still complete my application for review?

January 23, 2023

Proof of eligibility is important for your application, and your application will not be considered complete without official documentation. Please refrain from submitting your application until you have uploaded all the proper documentation, as you will not receive a notification of admission if your application is incomplete. Your letter of eligibility must be from within 6 months of submission of your application and it must indicate your full name and the term or dates of your program/internship.

Can I apply to live with my spouse/partner/family?

January 23, 2023

We allow for residents to live with spouses or families only in a Studio or a One-Bedroom North building apartment. To apply with a spouse/partner/family, complete the “Family Members” section of the application. The spouse should create a new application and fill out the personal information section, including the “Family Members” section. Children do not need to complete their own applications.

Can I apply to bring a pet to the House?

February 3, 2023

Unfortunately, we do not allow pets at International House. Emotional support and service animals must be approved to live in the House. Please review our Disability Accommodations Policy for more information on this process.

I want to live at I-House during the summer and the following academic year. I notice the summer ends on August 15 and the academic year begins on September 1. Do I have to move out for those two weeks?

January 23, 2023

If you are staying all summer and into the following academic year, you do not need to move out between August 15 and September 1. Later in the summer we will fill in the gap in your booking and your fall semester charges will begin on August 15.
