International House Darwin (IHD) is a student residential complex with a diverse mix of students from various socio-cultural backgrounds living in harmony and being academically and socially successful.

IHD provides a safe and secure residential community for overseas students at Charles Darwin University’s Casuarina campus. IHD offers its residents a variety of events and activities that cover professional and academic development, cultural and social experiences and social activities to promote personal wellbeing.  

IHD has almost 400 beds in 18 self-standing multi-level buildings, giving students access to affordable accommodation and a great community atmosphere!

You’ll also have the opportunity to enjoy workshops and seminars, social activities and the support of mentors.

By living at IHD residents have access to a wide range of social, cultural, intellectual and sporting activities, as well as facilities not available to other students. Barbeques, parties, movie nights, international food or culture nights, guest speakers, sporting activities and off-campus outings are organised for residents.

The key to enjoying your time at IHD is to get involved. Don’t feel shy - everyone can participate. There are a range of committees and activities that you can engage in, providing welcome relief from or supporting the rigours of study.

We encourage you to strike a balance between your study commitments and social engagement. Your studies will benefit from the relief given by social engagement and the support of others will help you to adjust to life at Charles Darwin University more quickly.
