MEET OUR RESIDENTS

Each year at International House we have around 240 residents at different stages of their studies. Around a third of our residents are Australian and two thirds are international and exchange students.

Our community is multicultural, down-to earth, inclusive and inspiring.

Meet some of our awesome residents for yourself below. You can meet our Senior Residents here who are often a first point of onsite contact for many of our residents.

MINH QUANG LE, VIETNAM

2018-19

My first year at IH was awesome there was a bunch of events and the vibes were so good, yeah I love IH so much. I made a lot of friends here, at all the dinners, breakfasts and lunches, and I went to the movies with them all the time and I enjoy the activities. People are so nice from the staff to the residents, the food is tasty, you can have a great real-life experience at IH.

GUNASEELALINGAM GOPALAKRISHNAN, MALAYSIA

2018-19

I enjoy the convenience of staying on-campus and also all the friends I’ve made because when you come to a new country sometimes you don’t know many people, but at IH you’ll find a diverse community where you can quickly and easily make good friends and find study partners. Vegemite I haven’t tried it yet, I always see it sitting on the IH counter but I’m very scared to try it, but Tim Tams these are one of Australia’s very best creations.

LÉA LAI VAN, NOUMÉA

2016-19

I love the welcoming Brisbane people and the active outdoor lifestyle where I can go kitesurfing and wakeboarding – it’s like I’m living a dream! I’ve enjoyed the best years of my life in Brisbane and Housies have become a second family to me. There is always something to do and someone to do it with at IH. It’s also great being on-campus and so close to everything you need

BENJAMIN WIESNER, GERMANY

2017-19

Although I am a domestic student, I lived in Germany for over 15 years and that’s where I consider home. I grew up quite multiculturally and hence, could have never landed anywhere else but at IH. I loved the atmosphere of multiculturalism and involvement from day one and I got so much out of this college just by coming to the events. What distinguishes IH most is that we are very diverse and culturally inclusive, I get to meet people from all corners of the world and hear their stories.
