Welcome to International Hospitality Programs  

International Hospitality Programs (IHP) coordinates activities that provide friendship, volunteer assistance, and hospitality to international students, scholars, and their families while attending the University of Virginia.

The IHP is comprised of three programs:

  • the Community Host Program for international students at the University of Virginia;
  • the Scholars Welcome Network, a host program for visiting researchers and faculty;
  • and the International Women's Group for international women and their families meet to make friends and learn about different cultures.

    IHP encourages community involvement and the development of international friendship bonds. We promote cultural exchange among our members and strive to acquaint international newcomers with the local community and its members. Find out how to join us.
