38 N. Main Street

The Latin American, Latino, and Caribbean Studies House is part of Dartmouth's Living Learning Community program. Events hosted in this space are limited to those that contribute to the mission of the House and reservation priority is given to residents, students, and departments affiliated with the program. While LALACS House provides opportunities for the gathering of the many members of the Latinx community, it is first and foremost a residence hall and home to the 14 students who reside there. The basement is the only reservable space.

The LALAC House is not currently open or available for reservation at this time.

La Casa

La Casa is an affinity program for students interested in practicing, improving, sharing or maintaining their Spanish or Portuguese speaking abilities and are interested in learning about Hispanic, Iberic or Lulso-Brazilian cultures. La Casa also serves the Dartmouth community with open events, including movie series, cooking classes, dinners, discussions and conversation hours.

Latin American, Latino, and Caribbean Studies Program

LALACS is an interdisciplinary program. It offers a standard major and minor in Latin American and Caribbean Studies (LACS), and courses in Latino Studies (LATS). LACS is designed to ensure both exposure to Latin American and Caribbean Studies, and the theoretical and empirical rigor of study in a single discipline. LATS focuses on the study of the Latina/o population and familiarizes students with the experience and cultural expression of the Latina/o communities in this country.

Department of Spanish and Portuguese

The Department of Spanish and Portuguese offers beginning language through advanced seminars, individual studies and honors programs, and a uniquely varied array of overseas programs. Students studying Spanish can apply to live at La Casa, a residential language facility.
