Living Communityglobalreslogo

GlobalRes is a themed living community designed for students who wish to live in a culturally diverse environment. The community, located in Nagel Hall, will include DU students from diverse backgrounds as well as a Graduate Coordinator and Resident Assistant who will provide engaging cultural learning opportunities for students on a monthly basis. Students interested in GlobalRes will be intentionally paired with a roommate in a double occupancy suite (two double occupancy rooms sharing one bathroom).

GlobalRes will focus on building meaningful intercultural peer relationships through development and programming opportunities, as well as help prepare students for studying, working, and living in culturally diverse environments in the U.S. and abroad. 

Students considering GlobalRes should have a desire to enhance their own cultural awareness and understanding through interactions with other DU students.
