Updates & Deadlines for Current Residents
Each week, you’ll be receiving an email with upcoming events and activities offered exclusively to Residents. Below is a quick list of some of the Resources and information to help make your stay more comfortable and fulfilling. Check back regularly for important deadlines regarding applications and other logistics.
The Resident Council
The Resident Council serves to advise the President in the affairs of International House by communicating the views and concerns of Residents in the spirit of partnership. Nominations for the 2019-2020 Resident Council positions will be open in September.
We have an exciting calendar of events planned for you, with more being developed by and with Residents. Most events are open exclusively to current Residents, so invitations will be sent to you internally. Do you have an idea for a program or event? Submit your idea today!

Be aware of some of the key policies all Residents should know:
Resident members of International House are carefully selected by the Admissions Committee to create a diverse community that is committed to the ideals of cross-cultural exchange, friendship, tolerance, respect, empathy and moral courage. As a Resident at I-House, you are not a tenant and International House is not a landlord. You are a member of a community devoted to a mission.
International House is a non-profit organization in which all Residents are substantially subsidized by philanthropic contributions to supplement Resident Fees. Community life is different than living independently—each Resident Member has duties and responsibilities to others in the community. Understanding and respect for community norms and practices, along with some degree of compromise in the face of individual desires, is required.
