Even as a first-year student, you can become involved in the Interhall Council. This group is the Residence Hall Association, and is made up of students living in residence who want to help creative and be actively involved in events for residence students. The Council also acts as a student government, advocating for students in residence and issues that concern them with the University.  Each Residence Hall has their own executive branch of upper year students who work together to make the residence experience positive and memorable.

The Interhall Council has a long history at the University of Guelph. Founded in 1969 under Residence Life Director Mr. K. Opare, IHC has grown to become the largest Residence Hall Association in Ontario with 61 members.

It’s also a very active organization: during Orientation Week, IHC runs over 100 events in only seven days. The IHC President is a member of the Orientation Team, and works to plan and facilitate Move-In Day, as well as coordinating large scale events such as the Pep Rally in conjunction with the College Governments.

As student representatives throughout the year, members of IHC sit on various committees and interact with residence and university professionals. They work alongside the Residence Life Staff in many areas.
