The International House at Palladium Hall is a community where living and learning is dynamic and constant. Both international and domestic students are invited to apply for this program, so that students from all nationalities may come together and learn from one another through meaningful exchanges and interactions.
This living learning community focuses on citizen diplomacy across the city and the world. We understand that making connections to other students is a critical component of any student's experience, but particularly for students visiting from another country for one semester, year, or multiple years. For American students, the International House is a phenomenal opportunity to participate in mulitcultural programs and social interactions with students from all over the world. Students who plan on studying abroad, or who are returning from abroad, are especially encouraged to apply!
International House is located in the Special Interest Suites in Palladium Hall (one large suite comprised of both single and double rooms that share a common space and kitchen). With close proximity to the multipurpose and seminar rooms for a global speaker series to large common spaces, Palladium is the ideal residence hall to host this amazing community. The International House is one of the best ways to connect to other international students and complement your incredible academic experience at NYU. You will also have a resident assistant (RA) who is specially trained to assist international students throughout their transition to and immersion in the United States and New York University. You will also have a faculty member designated for the floor (Faculty Affiliate). The Faculty Affiliate and Resident Assistant will collaboratively plan events and activities around the multicultural issues of New York City.
The International House also collaborates with R.I.S.E. (Residential International Student Engagement). Through events and programs, R.I.S.E provides an opportunity for foreign and domestic students at NYU to engage in citizen diplomacy, which is the fostering of global awareness, understanding, and cooperation through the exchange of ideas, stories, shared experiences, challenging dialogue, and intellectual growth.
International House is an exciting living learning community in which we hope you will become involved!
