Student Housing Options

International House- The I-House ThinkBig community is an energetic and vibrant place to live, filled with world music, international news and magazines, and the aromas of Asian teas. Best of all, it is full of students who are enthusiastic about our world and open to ideas and conversations about how the world works. The mission of this community goes beyond the building of a living community, by extending horizontally to build networks with other international organizations and clubs on campus and by enhancing the international activities, lectures, and film festivals that take place at Georgia Tech. A new course, IHouse: Globalization has been added to more closely link the community to the academic mission. Additionally, the I-House reaches out to participate in and enhance the vast offering of international activities at other local universities and throughout the vibrant city of Atlanta.
