Thank you for your interest in the Intercultural Resource Center and for considering the Intercultural House (ICH) as your housing option!
While all residential spaces are filled for the Fall 2021 semester, ICH applications will still be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis in the event an opening becomes available. The application for the 2022-23 academic year will open in late Fall 2021.
All residents must participate in a mandatory weekend orientation/retreat to take place prior to the start of the fall semester. Inability to participate in this experiential program in its entirety will be cause of dismissal from the program and residence. No exceptions will be made.
Note: Applicants are expected to reside in the ICH community for a full academic year. Plans to study abroad during the 2021–22 academic year may affect consideration of prospective residency.
Questions about the process, program requirements and/or qualifications? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prospective ICH residents should support the IRC’s objective to collectively work toward social justice, actively build community within the ICH and on campus and develop awareness of issues related to social inequity through education and social exchange. Applicants must be enrolled in no fewer than twelve points at Columbia College, Columbia Engineering or Barnard College. During their year of residence, applicants must be sophomores, juniors or seniors in good academic standing and disciplinary status (status may be verified as a part of the application process).
Important Dates and Deadlines
While all residential spaces are filled for the Fall 2021 semester, ICH applications will still be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis if an opening becomes available.
Applicants received at this time will be placed on a waitlist. Please email Multicultural Affairs to inquire about the waitlist process. All information is private and will remain on file for one year or until your residency in the IRC/ICH ends, whichever comes first.
All accompanying information, such as resumes, transcripts and program flyers must be included for your application to be complete.
All submitted materials and attachments become the property of the IRC and will not be returned. Applications that are incomplete in any way will not be reviewed.
Note: Applications for the 2022-23 academic year will open in late November 2021.
Intercultural House Interviews
For residency during the 2021-22 academic year, interviews will take place if spaces open during the 2021-22 academic year.
