General Information

House Advisors: Dr. Holly Hayer, Dr. Henry Thurston-Griswold, and Amy Frazier-Yoder

    What is La Casa Hispánica?

    Part of the Global Village initiative on campus, La Casa Hispánica strives to unite the Spanish language and the cultures surrounding it in a living experience. Residents come home to speak and hear Spanish. Common areas in La Casa Hispánica give residents the chance to chat casually in Spanish. Daily interaction, periodic meetings, and a range of planned cultural activities (including house meals prepared and shared twice a month by residents) enable students to explore their common interest in the culturally diverse Spanish-speaking world, and provide a place for residents to exchange stories about their personal experiences in Latin America or Spain. La Casa Hispánica welcomes all students who possess at least intermediate proficiency in Spanish: native and heritage speakers; non-native students who have lived, traveled extensively, or studied abroad; and students who will be enrolled in a Spanish course beyond SP 210.


    Located at 1631 Mifflin Street, on the corner of 17th and Mifflin and across from the World Languages (formerly known as Humanities) Center, La Casa Hispánica provides easy access to College classrooms as well as to Standing Stone Coffee Company. It houses 8 students and adheres to College housing policies. Both a Programming Coordinator and native Spanish-speaking students will live in the house.
