The German House, located on the first floor of Giles Hall (Randolph Complex on Ukrop Way), offers all those interested in German language and culture the opportunity to share in the “German experience.” We host a variety of activities that give you an authentic idea of the cultures of German-speaking countries. Also, these activities are a good space to practice your German language skills!
Conversation Hours for Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced Speakers

Kaffeeklatsch, Fridays, 3pm
An all-time favorite is the traditional Kaffeeklatsch. We meet at the German House, Giles Hall, to enjoy coffee and homemade German cake. Kaffeeklatsch is the place to meet people who share your interest in German language and culture. Here you can talk about your experiences in Germany, Austria, Switzerland or any other country you’ve visited. If you are interested in studying abroad, want to participate in the Münster program or have simply never had German cake, pay the German House a visit every Friday at 3 pm!
Filmabend, Wednesday, 7:00pm
Another good opportunity to learn more about German culture is our Deutscher Filmabend. Wednesdays at 7.00pm we are showing contemporary German movies and classics, ranging from comedies to historical movies and documentaries. Join Carolin to watch and discuss the movies people are watching in Germany.
Please check the bulletin boards in the German House or Washington Hall for information on the movies to be shown.
