Baytunaa is accepting applications for the 2020-2021 school year! Baytunaa is University Housing’s Arabic language house, located in Adams Hall. The language houses are dedicated to language immersion and cultural education.

In Baytunna, you can live the Arabic immersion experience with a native speaker while learning about the history and culture of the region. Living in Baytunaa is a great opportunity to learn and improve your Arabic skills, and is a door to meeting and interacting with the Arabic community in Madison. You will be living with students who share similar interests in the Arabic language and cultures.

African Cultural Studies is the academic co-sponsor of Baytunaa, and our own Mustafa Mustafa is the faculty director.
