As an alternative to dormitory living, the department also maintains a German House. The German House offers comfortable separate housing in a German language environment to seven students. A German exchange student also resides in the house and helps students with their language learning. Occasional cultural events are also held there. The former family home has a large living room with a fireplace and piano, dining room, five bedrooms (two doubles, three singles), three bathrooms, kitchen with laundry facilities, and a large yard.
