About

Welcome from the Head

To all visitors, greetings!

To live at IHD is to live in the Australian tropics, and that’s different. It places you in indigeneous and multicultural Darwin, and that’s distinctive. It locates you in the Northern Territory on the doorstep of South-East Asia, and that’s unique. 

IHD operates within the time-honoured traditions of academic residential communities. Our students come together from diverse countries and cultures as well as all parts of Australia to learn and live and bond together. Some folk point out that learning to live well in a community is an education in itself. 360 students at IHD take up that challenge every day. 

That’s not easy but it’s also not hard. When residents commit to the values of respect, understanding, encouragement and friendship then the collegiate experience transforms them. A happy heart promotes a happy mind and so a better scholar. People thrive in company and seek out the fun and joie de vivre of being involved. Together they create memories and the ties that bind. 

To live at IHD is to join also International Houses Worldwide. This is a network with more than 9,500 current students and a living alumnus exceeding 350,000 spread across the continents. Just imagine your future!
