Get Involved. Make the Most of I-House.

The I-House Program Office is here to create opportunities for residents to foster intercultural friendships and have fun through signature I-House events, student-initiated programs, trips and activities.

We accomplish this by working in collaboration with I-House residents, Resident Council, the Robertson Center for Intercultural Leadership, Resident Services and the greater UC Berkeley Community in order to build meaningful connections between I-House and its many stakeholders.

We will update this page with opportunities as they arise throughout the year. 

Looking forward to working with you!
