International House has an extensive cross-cultural program managed jointly managed by IH administration and our Student Club. No other residential college on-campus – or other accommodation providers in Brisbane – comes close to embedding cultural appreciation into their way of life.
Here at IH we have residents from all parts of the world, creating a rich cultural environment.
Our cross-cultural program provides a variety of free events and activities for residents to participate in and celebrate international festivals. For example:
Foreign Language Conversational Classes (Japanese, French, Mandarin, Spanish, Korean and more)
“Tabiat Selasa” meaning Tuesday’s habitual, can take the form of event style workshops or lectures. Sessions have included activities such as fencing, beer tasting, international board games, Aussie beer/damper night, break dancing and vegetarian cooking classes
Festival celebrations such as Annual Mid-Autumn Festival and Tanabata Omatzuri
I-Feast, a cooking competition between teams with native dishes from different countries
Soirée, our unique annual international food, beverage and entertainment event
