Global Village

In celebration of community and goodwill, the Global Village – started in 2002 by the Office of University Apartments, Office of International Education, and International Business Studies – helps international exchange students adapt to life at Marquette.

Four students – two current undergraduates called “ambassadors” and two international exchange students — live together in a two-bedroom, furnished unit in Campus Town West, conveniently located across from campus.

Global Village is a close-knit community that promotes cultural sharing and great opportunities for personal growth. Marquette students wanting to be ambassadors can request to live with a friend who is also an ambassador. You can be in any major, from any background.

You’ll complete a survey and be carefully matched with international students giving similar answers. You and your three roommates split the cost of a Campus Town apartment.
