Language House Calendar

Language Houses

The academic and cultural mission of each Language House is to immerse students in a living environment that fosters increased language study and cultural awareness. Native speaking Tutors facilitate conversation hours, movie nights, cultural celebrations, cooking classes and many other activities for all residents.

The Language Houses are located in the Randolph Complex and include: Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish.  Students interested in residing in one of these houses for the 2017-2018 academic year must submit an application.
