Meal Plans

Included in the Room and Board rates is a resident meal plan. Residents can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner Monday through Friday and brunch and dinner on Saturdays and Sundays.

There is a small kitchen that is available for residents' occasional use. The kitchen is currently under renovation and will re-open as soon as possible. Once open, reservations to use this kitchen can be made at the Front Desk.

The laundry room has washers and dryers for resident use which accept debit and credit cards. In addition, you will find other resources in the laundry room such as vending machines (with snacks, drinks and some laundry supplies), an ice machine, and a microwave for resident use.

Front Desk
The Front Desk staff provides assistance, responds to inquiries, takes messages, loans sports equipment, games, newspapers, and magazines and offers support after office hours. The Front Desk is open 8:00 a.m. -11:00 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday and 8:00 a.m.-1:00 a.m. Thursday through Saturday.

This facility is open exclusively to I-House residents 24 hours a day and features international newspapers and a variety of periodicals. It offers a congenial, yet quiet, study atmosphere.

Storage Lockers
I-House has 114 storage lockers located next to the Mail Room available for residents to rent and are charged by the semester. These lockers are accessible 24 hours a day and can be used to store personal items during your stay at I-House. Since the demand for storage far exceeds the number of lockers available, the service is on a first-come, first-served basis. Lockers may be rented by visiting the Mail Room during their posted hours. 

Other Amenities
Other amenities include: ping pong & pool room, pianos, TV lounge, meeting & conference rooms, magazines, fax services, and sports equipment.

Just living here gives you a much more balanced view of other countries. Everything from lunch to laundry, is a cultural event.
