Russian House

Russian House, or Russkii dom, is a Russian immersion floor in the International Learning Community located in Kronshage Residence Hall starting in Fall 2024, a dormitory on the shores of Lake Mendota. Russian Flagship students are encouraged, but not required, to live in Russki dom, as it provides additional opportunities to enhance students’ cross-cultural understanding and Russian language proficiency. A language program coordinator coordinates Russian-language social activities and provides language tutoring to students living in Russkii dom. Residents also enroll in a one-credit course on Russian culture taught by a faculty member in the Department of German, Nordic, and Slavic and participate in ILC-wide events such as roundtable dinners, lectures, and other international programming.
