Pilot 'living together' in an international student house
What's it like to live in an international student house? What kind of conversations would evolve? What kind of meals would students eat together? The Global Glass House gives Dutch and international students the opportunity to experience first-hand what it’s like to live together in an upcoming pilot.
The best of both worlds
Living in an international student house allows you to experience the best of both worlds – and that’s exactly what the Global Glass House aims to show. Students from all around the world are welcome to join the Global Glass House. Do you have to bring anything with you? Nothing really. Just a dose of curiosity will do. We’ve prepared snacks and comfy seats. Come join us and get a taste of what it’s like to live in an international student house.
Why this campaign?
The current housing market is making it hard for students to find housing – unfortunately, even more so for international students. Some room ads state that they’re ‘’not looking for internationals’’ or ‘’only Dutch students’’. To say that's unfortunate would be an understatement. Living in an international student house is an enriching experience for everyone involved. The Global Glass House wants to overcome perceived cultural barriers and show the value of living in an international student house.
