At International House there is so much to get involved in. The chances are you will find an outlet to pursue anything and everything you are interested in.
International House has four music practice rooms, six pianos, a drum kit and various musical instruments for students to use - including a Chinese Zither! There is also a music tutor to help students studying music and those involved in recreational music-making. Musically inclined students can demonstrate their talent at one of our many cultural and celebration events during the year.
With a strong tradition of friendly rivalry between the University of Melbourne colleges, it is no wonder that sport is an important part of life at International House. Residents are encouraged to participate in the Intercollegiate Sporting Program or to join in as spectators. International House has a team for AFL, athletics, badminton, basketball, cricket, football (soccer), hockey, netball, rowing, softball, swimming, squash, tennis and volleyball. The program is open to students of all ability levels.
Multipurpose court and gym
Residents are able to use the gym and multipurpose court at IH at their leisure and often gather together during the week for a leisurely evening game of basketball, futsal or tennis.
Our location in Parkville also allows convenient access to the University of Melbourne Sporting Complex and nearby Princes Park, a major sports and recreation ground.
Residents can take time out from study by relaxing in any of our communal living areas. You can watch a DVD or cable TV in the Junior Common Room, play the Wii, Playstation or a game of pool, table tennis or foosball in our activities room. If you need a coffee break, you can order a latte in our Café and just watch the world go by.
International House is also a short tram ride to Melbourne's CBD, which offers world-class cafés, restaurants, entertainment and shopping precincts - so go explore!
