Located in a house directly off campus, these students work to promote diversity and cultural awareness. Residents of the International House have the opportunity to bring the world beyond LMU to the campus community. Housemates encourage international awareness with an array of events open to all students. The Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) moderates the house and accepts applications for residency each spring for the following fall. Both international and domestic students are welcome to apply. Please visit the OISS website for more information.
How to apply
To access the applications for the different theme housing programs, please log in to MYLMU. Select "system logins" from the top right to access "student housing online services" option from the drop down menu. Select the "my housing" tab and the link titled "forms."
"I moved into the International House immediately after spending a semester abroad in Spain. I was fortunate enough to receive help with cultural norms and questions from Spanish students while living in Madrid. Moving to IHOP gave me the opportunity to switch roles and be an American presence in an international community. However, I probably learned more from my international roommates then they ever did from me."
-Kate Peeler, Class '09
“Living in the International House has opened my eyes to a new world of culture. Some of the most important people in my life I have met through living in the house. I now have a good excuse to visit countries I have never been to!”
-Bettina Messerli, Class '10
“The house has been a life changing experience for me! My 6 roommates and I have had a lot of good times throughout the year. I am very fortunate to have had this opportunity.”
-Tibor Forai, Class '11
