I-House Holiday Benefit Concert

Holiday Concert

The concert was indeed a feel good event! A special thanks goes out to all our talented residents and to all who donated money! We have collected $301 so far, plus $300 from Council. Donations are being accepted this week as well. Please consider donating if you can. Selina Makana, I-House resident from Kenya said, "Nothing is considered a small donation. These children really need your help. Think about it." Photo by Larnie Macaseib.

Home for the Holidays?

Will you be in Berkeley for winter break? Are you curious about how Americans spend their winter holidays? We at I-House can find a hospitable American family for you to celebrate with this season. It may be Christmas, Hannukah, New Year's Eve, New Year's Day, or an evening of Christmas merriment!
If you are interested, please email Eugenia ASAP at ihprograms@berkeley.edu with info on which holiday you are most interested in and dates when you are unavailable. Please include your name, gender, home country, phone# and email, as well as your study field, and whether you are a grad or undergrad.

I-House Cafe Will Close for Renovation

The I-House Cafe will close on December 9th until January 6th. The Cafe furniture will be moved into the Game Room starting 12/9. The Game Room will not be available until after January 6th. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience and very much appreciate everyone's patience and understanding as we refresh all the public spaces (Cafe, Auditorium, Hallways, Homeroom & Sproul).

Maintenance Schedule for Bathrooms

In the Spring Semester, I-House will implement a cleaning and maintenance schedule for restrooms and showers. The schedules will advise residents both via the I-House website, e-News and snailmail at that time. The schedule will not be the same for all restrooms/showers, so it will be possible to have access to alternates if your preferred space is being cleaned or maintained.
