Your Home Away from Home
More than just an address, living at International House is an experience that will bring you face to face with students from around the globe. International House is a dynamic program center and residence hall for approximately 500 students from over fifty countries who are affiliated with educational, professional, and cultural institutions in and around Chicago. In addition to serving as a vibrant residential community, International House also serves the greater Chicago community as a cultural and intellectual center for a wide range of diverse programs.
To ensure that future generations will have the opportunity to enjoy the "I-House experience," we have recently undergone a $31 million dollar restoration effort to upgrade our facility. As part of this effort, all our residential sleeping rooms have been completely refurbished. Most of these rooms are singles that include a twin size bed, a desk and chair, bookshelves, a dresser, and a wardrobe. All residential floors have a common bathroom. Additionally, there are a limited number of rooms with sinks or that share a semi-private bathroom. All rooms have a University of Chicago telephone and data network access (both wired and wireless). The building has many other outstanding features and we encourage you to take a minute to learn more. If you're ready to get started, please continue to read information on our admissions process.
We hope that you will consider joining us at International House during your stay in Chicago. We are open 365 days a year and never close; so that we can truly serve as your "home away from home" while in Chicago. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us. We are available by phone daily from 7:00am to 11:00pm central time at (773) 753-2270. Or, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org We look forward to seeing you soon!
