The Spanish House is a living-learning community that explores Hispanic language and cultures and is open to students who have a strong interest in Spanish and who have completed or placed into Spanish 131 or above.

The Spanish House provides students the opportunity to improve their language skills through immersion in daily foreign-language activities including speaking Spanish in the house on a regular basis, and exposure to Hispanic films, art, politics, music, and food. Student enroll in a 1.5 credit Spanish Cultural Experience course which is taught in residence and are required to take a three credit linked course, either in the fall or spring, in the Spanish department.

This learning experience is enhanced by the active presence of a native-speaking Learning Community Coordinator who teaches the house course and serves as a mentor to residents. Specialized programming, events, and travel opportunities designed to deepen students’ understanding of Hispanic cultures and language are offered each year.
