International House Philadelphia

International House Philadelphia


International House Philadelphia promotes a more globally connected Philadelphia by supporting students and scholars from around the world and welcoming them to the Greater Philadelphia community.


For more than a century, International House Philadelphia has served the Greater Philadelphia community by providing engaging residential services and compelling arts and humanities programming. What began here more than 100 years ago as a belief that international understanding, cooperation, and friendship can develop one person at a time, has emerged as a celebrated world-wide movement.


Although the physical location of IHP has changed over the years, from a Reverend’s home in West Philadelphia to an award-winning, purpose-built building in the heart of University City, the mission has remained fundamentally the same: to maintain a diverse and welcoming community and encourage understanding, respect, and cooperation among people from around the world.
