Foreign Language Houses

The language houses at the University are designed to provide an opportunity for intensive language learning and cultural experience for students who live there. Students are required to speak the foreign language (i.e., French, German, Spanish, or Russian) at all times in the common areas; at least one native speaking graduate student typically lives in the house. Students must have at least an intermediate knowledge of the language to qualify for admission to the houses (but are not necessarily language majors).

Russian   Located at 102 Cresap Road, the Russian House is home to nine students and a faculty advisor. Double and single rooms are available. Common areas include a living room, a dining room, and community kitchen. Visit the Russian House on-line at www.virginia.edu/~slavic.

La Maison Française   Located at 1404 Jefferson Park Avenue. Some 29 undergraduate students live together with several graduate students (one visiting from France) in either triple, double, or single room accommodations. Common areas include a dining room, a parlor, a library, and a seminar room. Visit La Maison Française on-line at www.virginia.edu/~french/maison/maison.html
