International House Residents bring to the community a plethora of culture and interests. During the course of a typical year, I-House Residents represent approximately 100 different countries and 70+ different academic and professional institutions.
Currently, International House has been receiving Residents in its North Building with apartments and kitchens, while housing in the South Building remains closed. Despite the reduced numbers, I-House is committed to providing a meaningful experience for Residents through an array of Resident Support Services and opportunities for Residents to engage with one another as part of a global community.
