Living Community


GlobalRes is a themed living community in Nagel Hall designed for students who wish to live in a culturally diverse environment. The community will include both international and domestic DU students as well as a cultural partner who will provide engaging cultural learning opportunities for students on a weekly basis.

Students interested in GlobalRes will be intentionally paired with a domestic or international roommate in a suite style room (four students sharing one bathroom). GlobalRes will focus on building meaningful intercultural peer relationships through development and programming opportunities.

Students considering GlobalRes should have a desire to enhance their own cultural awareness and understanding through interactions with other DU students. GlobalRes community members will be able to move into Nagel Hall early and will attend a day long retreat. Additionally, students who participate in GlobalRes may have the opportunity to stay in Nagel Hall over Winter Break (if requirements from the community agreement are met).
