An International Hub
Nearly 1,200 international students (“nonresident aliens”) come to U of L each year to study and contribute to the research, teaching and culture of the university community. U of L’s International Center is a hub for their activities on campus. More than a dozen international student organizations work through the International Center to offer support and provide services to students of all nationalities.
Ongoing advising and assistance with immigration matters is provided by the International Student and Scholar Services staff, including a formal orientation for international students at the beginning of each semester. Opportunities to learn about the campus and the community, conversational English classes and scholarly and social event abound. The International Center also sponsors the Contact Family Program, which connects U of L’s international students and scholars with American hosts in the Louisville community.
