Harvey House

Known as Spanish House or La Casa Hispánica, this residence hall is closely connected with the Department of Hispanic Studies. One faculty-in-residence and two teaching assistants live in the house with one resident assistant to supervise the students and help them progress with their language skills. Nearly 30 students are selected to live in Harvey. This community, though small, is passionate about the Spanish language and all that comes with it.

The two lounges in Harvey are consistently used for parties, study breaks, and brunches prepared by the residents. For those wishing to practice their language skills while socializing, Harvey hosts specials meals and Café Latinos. The main dining hall has a room reserved for residents and friends who want to converse in Spanish during meals.

Students wanting to live in Harvey must fill out an application and be able to speak some Spanish. All proficiencies from beginner to fluent are welcome.
