Merced, CA, is the home of vast Hispanic and Asian communities (24% foreign-born), and UC Merced is the most ethnically and culturally diverse campus of the University of California system (76%).

Our community provides opportunities to engage with the campus vision and explore, promote, facilitate, and expand intercultural and international learning and engagement opportunities for all campus community members in the service of the University of California’s larger commitment to teaching, research, and public service.

International House Merced provides students the opportunity to identify their own pathway to becoming a global citizen, engage in on-campus and off-campus cultural events, and learn about cultural and political trends in the world: food, customs, languages, beliefs, migrations, social justice, climate, LGTBQ+ issues. International House LLC is open to all students interested in international issues who seek to be change-makers in today’s world. Members of our community are expected to be active members who exhibit curiosity, initiative, and a desire to positively impact the world around them.
