SJSU International House

The SJSU International House (I-House) was originally known as the SJSU International Center (I-Center).  It was renamed SJSU International House in 1997, yet the lettering on the front of the building still reflects the original name.   Help us update the iconic front porch of the House with accurate signage, which meets accessibility lettering standards, and promotes the I-House to future residents, the SJSU community,  and our neighbors.  

As home to approximately 4,000 SJSU students from more than 100 countries over 40 years (1978-2019), I-House has played a memorable role in the experience of students attending SJSU.  Our alumni continue to meet each other on their worldwide travels, and every couple of years, I-House holds official reunions in San Jose and around the world.

We need your help to make this important update to the lettering so please support the I-House and make your gift today!
