Facilities and Classrooms

The Department of Modern & Classical Languages is housed in the Martha Miller Center for Global Communication.

Many of our language classes take place in the Martha Miller Center (MMC), and our language houses are designed for students who’d like to be completely immersed in French or Spanish during their free time.

La Maison Francaise

La Maison Francaise is our French language house on campus, housing six female students who are interested in using French with other like-minded students. Affectionately named after Marguerite Prins, a French professor at Hope, the students chosen to live here pledge to use French in their daily interactions in the common areas of La Maison Francaise.

The Spanish House

The Spanish House is our Spanish language house on campus, with room for five female students interested in practicing their language skills and learning more about the culture that our programs offer.
