About the Community

As one of the smallest living groups on campus, we have a laid back, homey culture and a tight-knit family. Don’t speak German? That’s totally fine; while we would love it if you do, most of our members don’t. We have a variety of interests here in German House ranging from baking, Smash Bros, volleyball, hiking, the list goes on!



On any given day, you can find us in the lounge hanging out, psetting, or binging shows. Not feeling social? That’s fine - you’ll have a cozy single or double to yourself if you really need to cram in some work! Our cook-crew system ensures that everyone eats six healthy, homemade meals each week, with each member committing to just two hours of cooking per week! Aside from living and cooking together, we also hold a variety of social events, including fancy dinners for celebrations, rock climbing outings, and mass boba orders.
