Welcome to ISRC!

Read our 2022-2023 welcome letter here!

The International Studies Residential College (ISRC) of Northwestern University is housed in West Fairchild Hall. Most of our events have an international focus, such as our weekly International Film Night and multicultural munchies. Even though our theme is international studies, you don’t need to be an International Studies major to live here. If you love to travel, try new and interesting foods, and learn different languages – or you just like the building location – ISRC is perfect for you!

We are a part of the Residential College Board (RCB) which has a 10 different residential colleges, catering to a number of student interests. When you complete your housing application, choose residential colleges! They’re a great way to get involved on campus, make friends, and form personal relationships with professors.



We are located on South Campus, close to the Weber Arch, the Rock, Harris Hall, University Hall, Crowe Hall, Kresge Hall, East Fairchild (CRC), Locy Hall, and Fisk Hall. We are about five minutes away from the Norris University Center, the Allison dining hall, the Hinman dining hall, and the Alice Millar Chapel.
