Affiliate program

A global perspective on student life
There's more to university than lectures and libraries. Forge lifelong friendships and get more out of your university experience at the most diverse residential community on campus.

Brand new for 2020, our affiliate membership program is designed for non-residential students to immerse themselves in the range of International House programs and events normally reserved for residents.

What's included?

  • daily lunches and dinners in the dining hall with residents (10 meals per week)
  • access to study and recreational spaces in the Wool Room, Dining Hall and Coffee Room (including access to University Wi-Fi and printing facilities) 
  • affiliated membership of the International House Members’ Association (IHMA), allowing access to all social events and activities run by IHMA
  • participation in the IH welcome week program – an outstanding opportunity to make friends before semester starts
  • participation in the Global Leadership Program – gain insights into leadership, attend events with eminent leaders, and add real value to your CV
  • participation in the peer-led academic assistance program, as either peer learners or peer tutors (employment opportunity)
  • participation in intramural sports and arts competitions.
  • participation in the international Davis Projects for Peace grant scheme (a benefit of our International Houses Worldwide affiliation)
  • optional bike storage/car parking (incurring additional charges).

This program is ideal for students living at home or those looking to make new friends from across the world. Places are limited to 10 students for the 2020 intake.

Why International House?

International House is the only residential college owned and operated by the University of Sydney. We nurture a resident community of scholars from around the world who are committed to the value of international understanding and fellowship. Our residential community represents a cross-section of students from across the university, including a broad mix of faculties, genders, ages, countries and cultures.
