At Home Abroad House

At Home Abroad (AHA) House is an intellectual and cultural crossroads where upperclass students will engage in interactive, transcultural learning and acquire the tools necessary to confront the complexity of our contemporary world. Building on the legacies of Stanford houses that hosted language tables in various foreign languages, AHA House is a vibrant, diverse community that offers students an opportunity to explore languages and cultures beyond the English-speaking world, with graduate students from EALC leading language tables in Chinese and Japanese. We welcome any and all students interested in creating a space for conversations about East Asian films, music, food, and international issues.

Through activities including film series, seminars, cooking classes, language tables, resident-led events, off-campus outings, and meetings with faculty, artists, and scholars from all over the world, residents will have a chance to broaden their awareness and understanding of the incredible range of experiences, ideas, and non-English idioms that each house resident brings.

AHA House, also known as Yost House/Dorm, is located in Governor's Quad and sits on the west end of Stanford's sprawling campus. Situated next to Lake Lagunita, it offers great access to the outdoors, easy routes to the main academic areas of campus, and a vibrant neighborhood atmosphere.
