Inter Housing Council

Learn by leading, no matter where you live

Inter Housing Council (IHC) is Cal Poly’s housing student government comprised of 3 groups that enhances the resident experience. Community Council works together to meet resident needs in their homes, while providing representatives for campus and University Housing decision-making to the larger Advocacy Board. Event Team brings exciting events to Cal Poly’s campus that create lasting memories for residents.

IHC Community Councils are student-led governments, elected by residents of each community. Residents who join gain leadership experience by delegating funding, meeting community needs, and hosting events. For those who don’t formally take a role in their Council, by attending Council meetings, they are empowered to play an active role in their home while interacting with other residents!

IHC Advocacy Board brings together the Community Council Presidents and select Senators to provide feedback on housing, campus initiatives, and community involvement. Examples of Advocacy Board work include adding hydration stations and community gardens to housing as well as advising designers on new building developments.

IHC Event Team is a group of students who design and lead fun, large-scale, late-night, weekend events! Past events have included Escape Rooms, concerts, Magic and Laughs, Donut Festival, Amazing Race, BBQs, Mustangs Got Talent, and more. Not only can you attend these always-free events, but you can apply to this on-campus job in the winter quarter!
