The House system is an integral part of life at Harlaxton College and aims to provide a sense of community and identity within each House that goes beyond students’ home campuses. The House system also works to:

  • Provide a framework for the College’s extracurricular activities;
  • Increase involvement in academic, athletic, creative, and social activities;
  • Engage students with a strong British tradition and history associated with the individual Houses;
  • Provide additional leadership opportunities through the House Captain roles;
  • Create a stable platform for extracurricular activities and provide opportunities for students to positively engage with the Harlaxton community outside of the classroom.

House events run throughout the semester with points being awarded for each event or competition. Competitions/events fall into the categories of Academic, Athletic, Creative, Social, and Other. The House with the most points at the end of the semester will win the overall House competition: The Manor Key! The various houses include Gregory, Mercia, Newton, and Pegasus. For more on the houses, visit the API Blog.


Since 1983, British families have been opening their homes to Harlaxton students through the Meet-A-Family Experience. This is an outstanding opportunity for students to be immersed in and better understand authentic British culture.

Students visit British homes for meals throughout the session, sometimes going with their families on trips, to concerts, or to sporting events. Harlaxton students quite literally “get a taste” of British family life, sometimes returning the compliment by cooking an American meal for their host family—and hosting their British “Mums” and Dads at their house, Harlaxton Manor, which the families love.

The relationships often last a lifetime. American students come back to England to visit; British hosts go to the States for graduations and weddings.

It’s a chance to have “family” close by while living abroad, along with an unforgettable experience in cross-cultural understanding and caring.



Students receive an official transcript from the University of Evansville upon successful completion of the program. The University of Evansville is a four-year, fully accredited U.S. university in Evansville, Indiana.
