Max Kade International Wing

The Max Kade International Wing in North Village C is a special interest area that promotes cross-cultural sharing and exploration. The wing includes seven five-person apartments, and five of these houses focus on specific academic areas (Chinese, German, French, Spanish, and the Middle East/North Africa [MENA]). Applicants for this community might include students with an interest in international or foreign language studies, international students, or students who have lived or traveled abroad. While a previous background in the particular language or academic area may strengthen a student’s application for a specific house, students do NOT have to be majoring in that field to be considered for the house.

For students with demonstrated (FAFSA) financial need, additional financial aid is possible up to $1,000. This aid is only available to those students applying to live in the following houses: Chinese, German, French, Spanish, and MENA. Students who are unsure of their financial status should contact the office of Financial Aid (814) 332-2701 or

Students may apply for admission to more than one house. Applications are due by February 8th for the 2014-2015 academic year. Please email with any questions regarding the application process or the Max Kade International Wing.
