Language House

The deadline for Shea House applications for the 2011-2012 school year is November 15, 2010

On October 3, 2003, the Board of Visitors approved naming the Monroe Lane Language House after A. Vincent Shea, former vice president for business and finance in the "1970s". The Shea House provides approximately 75 students at the University of Virginia the unique opportunity to live for an academic year in an environment of total language immersion in Chinese and Japanese. Modeled after similar houses for other languages, the Shea House serves as the cultural and linguistic center at U.Va. for Italian and for six of the richest and most widely spoken languages of Asia and the Middle East. Each year there will be a number of cultural events put on at the Shea House in collaboration with faculty from the Department of East Asian Languages, Literatures and Cultures (DEAL-LC), the Department of Middle Eastern Languages and Cultures (MESALC) and from the Department of Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese. Whether joking with friends, sharing meals, keeping a journal, discussing films, or discussing politics, students living at the Shea House will have one of the finest opportunities available at a North American university to deepen their experience of these vital languages and cultures.
