New Living Community

globalreslogoGlobalRes is a new community located in Nagel Hall designed for students who wish to live in a culturally and globally diverse environment. The community will include both international and domestic DU students as well as a cultural mentor 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.  Students who participate in GlobalRes will also have the opportunity to stay in Nagel Hall over Winter Break.
