ABOUT US

The Illinois Residence Hall Association(IRHA) was founded in 1977 to provide leadership development and cooperation between institutions of higher education in Illinois.

IRHA brings student leaders who work within residence hall environments across the state together every year to showcase programing focused on leadership, diversity, and personal development.

In addition to programming IRHA provides a space for networking between institutions, and recognizing the successes of affiliate institutions.

All of these things take place at an annual conference which is local, cost effective, and high quality. In addition to the annual leadership conference, IRHA provides resources year-round for member institutions. 

IRHA serves Residence Hall Associations and National Residence Hall Honorary Chapters of large and small institutions.
