iHouse Living Learning Community

iHouse Living Learning Community



In the International House (iHouse) Living Learning Community, UD students live among other international and domestic students with a passion for traveling the globe.

All upperclass undergraduate students are encouraged to consider living in this globally-focused residence hall. Second year UD World Scholars are required to live in iHouse. Together, you'll live with and learn from students from around the world and have the opportunity to participate in monthly programming that will help you build international friendships, develop intercultural skills and broaden your global perspectives. 

Every year we close Ray Street for our annual block party, celebrating the iHouse community with food, games, music, and fun and host iHouse Culture Nights throughout the semester. We invite you to come and explore iHouse!
