About Us

Inter-House Council (IHC) is a student representative body composed of a nine-person student Executive Committee and a representative from each House in UChicago's housing system. The group is connected to Housing & Residence Life and is overseen by the Senior Associate Director of Residence Life.

At weekly meetings, these students come together to discuss topics related directly to students who live in the housing system, including dining, housing, facilities, transportation, and security. Additionally, IHC coordinates several social and philanthropic events throughout the year in order to promote inter-house community-building. IHC representatives act as open lines of communication between Housing & Residence Life and their individual Houses, as well as civic leaders within their House communities. Students from IHC sit on several University committees due to their access to information about the interests of the undergraduate population living in the Houses. 

The Inter-House Council general assembly meetings are at 6:00pm in the Baker Private Dining Room of the Baker Dining Commons (come have dinner with the Executive Committe at 5:30pm) on Tuesdays from 1st to 10th weeks. They are not open to the general public. Please contact the IHC President if you wish to attend or have an item placed on the agenda. Please contact the president by noon on the Friday prior to the meeting.
