We encourage Chinese Flagship Scholars to live and participate in the Global Scholars Hall Living the Language Academic Residential Programs (ARP). Not all students in the Chinese section of the Global Scholars Hall are Flagship Scholars, and the Global Scholars Hall Living the Language is also home to similar programs in German, French, Japanese, and Spanish.
As part of the Global Scholars Hall experience, students participate in a weekly course to explore their role as multilingual participants in a local, national, and international context.
Located on the east edge of campus, the Global Scholars Hall is co-ed by room. It is one of two communities that house a Library Commons and a full-time librarian to assist with research papers and academics. The main level of this building features classroom spaces, a demonstration kitchen, music practice rooms, and a recreation room.
The Flagship Program offers scholarships to those staying in the Global Scholars Hall in an effort to make the residential community more affordable for students and their families.
Regardless of their admission status with the Chinese Flagship program, all students who want to live on the floor must:
- Have acquired at least Novice-Mid or equivalent of first-year proficiency
- Enroll in at least one Chinese language or Flagship course per term (4-5 credits)
- Attend the required weekly meetings or designated classes
- Have a minimum 3.0 GPA
- Sign a language pledge
Students should complete the online UO Housing application, select “Chinese Flagship” as one of the ARP choices, and select a room type with a “-GSH” suffix. Housing works with Flagship staff to place students based on application date, student interests, and roommate preference statements.
