International House

Living-Learning Community 


During your second year as a UD World Scholar, you will reside in the International House (iHouse) Living Learning Community, located in Ray Street C. 

In iHouse, you will live among other international and domestic students with a passion for traveling the globe. You'll make new friends and help build a community that spans nations and breaks down barriers. 

The benefits don't end there. While living in iHouse:

  • You'll experience new cultures! Residence Life & Housing and the Institute for Global Studies offer monthly programming that will help you build international friendships, develop intercultural skills and broaden your global perspectives. 

  • And the research shows-- Students who live in University residence halls perform better academically and are more connected to their peers, leadership opportunities and campus organizations, to name a few. 

Ray Street is a secure, suite-style hall equipped with its own parking lot, a basketball court, piano and indoor study spaces. The convenient location is steps away from classrooms, the UD Little Bob, Laird athletic fields, White Clay Creek State Park, Pencader Dining Hall, Main Street and more!


A Welcome Home for UD International Students

As you explore on-campus housing options, we encourage you to consider UD's International House (iHouse) Living Learning Community. After all, iHouse isn’t international without you! 

As an international resident, you'll make new American friends who are eager to introduce you to American experiences-- and are equally as excited to know more about where you come from. We empower students to bring their "home away from home" to life! Enjoy opportunities to decorate your shared spaces, prepare special foods, plan internationally-themed programs and bring your community together for fun.
