Only students age 21 and over are eligible to apply to the ISH for housing, and preference is given to non-US citizens. The majority of students living there are international students. All rooms are furnished with a desk, chair, lamp, single bed, dresser, and bookcase. Heating, air-conditioning, communication, laundry facilities, and 13 meals weekly are included in the rates. Students share bathrooms and living spaces within the house, there is also a computer lab, library, and courtyard. The student lounges have refrigerators for food storage so that students can buy groceries for lunch. Grinnell College students cannot request to be roommates at ISH as they purposefully mix and match different nationalities and programs throughout the residence. Please see the ISH website for more information and an application: http://www.ishdc.org/.
