Join International Coffee Hour

Join UGA students, faculty and staff of all backgrounds at International Coffee Hour each week. The event runs from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Memorial Hall Ballroom. Excluding scheduled university breaks, the coffee hour takes place every Friday during fall and spring semesters.

Hosted each week by student organizations and campus departments, UGA’s International Coffee Hour is one of the longest running programs of its kind in the U.S. The program offers a unique experience to engage in conversation with people of different cultures and backgrounds. Typically several hundred people attend International Coffee Hour each week.

International Coffee Hour often includes a sampling of finger foods from around the world. It also has a different host each week including UGA international student organizations, university departments and offices, community groups and many others.

While each week has a new host or sponsor, the International Student Life office typically hosts the first and last International Coffee Hour of each semester.

The International Coffee Hour at Memorial Hall has been run by International Student Life since 1972 and is open to members of the UGA and Athens communities as an opportunity to learn about other cultures through food, music, performance and conversation.
