I-House South & North Buildings

Should I apply to live in I-House North or I-House South?

February 6, 2023

Both residence halls have been designed to to prepare global leaders through a lived experience that consists of organic encounters with fellow members of the I-House community. Because the buildings are connected and many amenities are located on the lower floors of the South building, International House is able to facilitate cross-cultural community-building regardless of where one lives.
During the application process, you will be required to rank up to five room preferences. It is always recommended to list at least one room from both the North and South buildings for the best chance at receiving one of your desired room types.
