University of New Haven International Services

The International Services Office (ISO)
provides assistance to the University's diverse international student population, which is composed of more than 800 students from 50 countries. The staff generally assists students with immigration matters, coordinates campus and community services, and promotes interaction between the international population, the University, and the communities of greater New Haven.

The presence of international students at UNH helps make the University truly a global village: our campus community may be small in number but we are vast in cultures, ethnicities, languages, nationalities, politics, religions, and traditions. To encourage multicultural awareness through the interaction with international students, the ISO coordinates and organizes various programs and activities.
