Rumor has it that honors freshmen will be housed in East Village in Fall 2017. This site has not been otherwise updated to reflect that change.
If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve been accepted into the Honors program at Northeastern University. It’s also possible that you’ve heard of International Village, the dorm building that houses first year Honors students.
International Village, or IV (or INV) for short, is currently Northeastern’s second-newest residence hall, constructed in 2009. It is unlike any other freshman dorm I’ve ever seen, featuring its own dining hall, workout area, classrooms, semi-private double and single rooms, and stunning views of the city.
It’s astounding to me how little information the University provides on a building that probably exists to boost Honors program enrollement. I am currently an upperclassman Northeastern student, and I lived in IV as a freshman a few years ago. Way back when I was accepted, I kept hearing about IV and how great it was, but almost no information was out there. I had no idea what the rooms looked like or what to expect.
My goal here is to provide the information I wish I had. I haven’t updated the site much since creating it during my first winter break, but leave a comment somewhere to ask a question and I’ll do my best to answer. Maybe I’ll even get around to adding some more photos and information eventually.
