Kade-Dusenberg German House is a co-ed residence hall that has a capacity for 13 students. Residents of Kade study German language and culture through a partnership between Foreign Languages and Residential Life. This hall is unique in that the German language must be spoken at all times in the public areas of the facility, such as the kitchen and lounges, in order to promote immersion and learning. Kade is a suite style hall with two, three and four-person suites. Residents live in double rooms that are equipped with movable furniture including beds, wardrobes, desks with chairs, bookshelves and dressers. Each suite has shared bathroom spaces within.
