There are six houses that provide a cultural and academic focus on an International Language and its associated cultural experiences. These houses are open to sophomore through senior students. The language immersion houses are sponsored by the Foreign Language departments, and residents maintain a commitment to practicing the particular language and culture while living in the house. The different language themes are Spanish, French, German, Italian, Russian, and Japanese/Chinese. All of the language immersion houses are co-educational. There is an application process each year to live in a language house.
