The Innternationale is very different from any other housing available.
The difference is in the environment and the program. Imagine a place
where you can say “bom dia”(good morning) in Portuguese to a friend in
the morning and “bonne nuite” (good night) in French to another.
Special attention was taken by Randy Becker, the founder and architect,
to insure the Innternationale promotes a friendly and safe environment
- Located within the heart of the UD campus
- Free cable TV, high-speed internet and telephone
- Rooms include compact refrigerator and microwave
- A kitchen on every floor (9 community kitchens in the facility)
- World Café with vending machines and game room
- Excellent security with interior/exterior monitored cameras and all doors have electronic key cards
The heart of theINNternationale is the program. A unique feature of the Innternationale is the
spoken language program. The language program brings students together to learn
about different cultures and languages. In addition to the spoken language
program, the Innternationale offers academic lectures, workshops and film
programs in the Conference Center. With all these activities there is never a
lack of things to do or learn at the Innternationale.
History of the International Houses of the World
As conceived and developed by the Harry Edmonds, Cleveland
Dodge and Rockefeller families, other International houses have operated
successfully for decades in cities such as New York, Chicago, Paris and
Philadelphia and have garnered an enviable list of Alumni leaders including Henry
Kissinger, Japanese automotive executive Tatsuro Toyoda, The President of
Malawi, as well as Nobel Prize winning scientist. The INNternationale has been created with the
expectation of achieving a similarly illustrious Network benefiting the University of Delaware
and enhancing our state’s future prospects as a center of international
corporate headquarters and foreign investment.
The University of Delaware
The INNternationale Program has been developed with the
guidance and consultation of selected scholastic chairpersons and directors
that compose the Board of advisors.
The INN Multi Media Theater (8-11pm)
Every Wednesday night is a movie where the students choose from Netflix. The surround sound is wonderful and a great way to meet the other residents or guests.
Language Tutoring Session (6-8pm)
Every Wednesday night the INN hosts a special language tutoring session by a campus ministry. This has been very successful with an average of 20-40 tutors and international students, both residents and the greater university community.
