Darwin, Australia

Darwin BuildingTo live at IHD is to live in the Australian tropics, and that’s different. It places you in indigenous and multicultural Darwin, and that’s distinctive. It locates you in the Northern Territory on the doorstep of South-East Asia, and that’s unique.

International House Darwin has come a long way since it opened as University House in 1985. It joined IHWW as North Flinders International House in 1997. More than 20 years later, IHD takes the time-honoured traditions of academic residential communities and combines them with local life to provide a well-balanced student experience.

Each year, IHD is home to 360 residents from 40 to 50 countries. By committing to the values of respect, understanding, encouragement and friendship, individuals have the chance to be transformed by their collegiate experience.

The key to living at IHD is getting involved. There are a range of cultural, sporting and social activities for residents to engage in, providing relief from the rigour of study. IHD encourages residents to strike a balance between the two.

A healthy community is a happy community. Through IHD’s pastoral programs, resident leaders and staff, members of the community have the support to thrive and flourish.
