International House (IHouse)

International Undergraduate Orientation


Welcome, Class of 2022 International and Visiting International Students!

International House is very excited to welcome you to Duke University and to the International Orientation on Sunday, August 19, 2018 and Monday, August 20, 2018.   We hope Duke and International House will be a place for you to connect, learn, and grow.

International Orientation is an opportunity for you to:

  • Be welcomed and supported by the IHOP team and International House staff
  • Befriend other first-year international students and visiting international students
  • Build a sense of community among all the new international students
  • Become familiar with the Duke campus and the resources available here

For many international students, the International Orientation serves a key role in acclimating them to the U.S. and Duke culture as well as a way of developing deep friendships with other students.

We hope you will take part in the International Orientation this year and that your parents and family members accompanying you to Duke in August will join the International Parent/Family Orientation.

Students who register for International Orientation will be permitted to move into their residence halls early on either Friday, August 17 or Saturday, August 18.

The registration deadline for International Orientation is Monday, July 2, 2018.

The registration form will be available shortly.
