Founded in 1984, the Inter Residence Hall Government (IRHG) is the second largest student government at Creighton University, representing the nearly 2,500 residents living on campus in residence halls and apartments. The organization - supported and recognized by the Department of Residence Life - includes an Executive Board and voting General Assembly consisting of residents who serve as the executives of their respective Residence Hall and Apartment Councils. At weekly General Assembly meetings, held each Tuesday, issues such as policy, dining services, financial allocations, and programming are discussed. Beyond serving as a medium through which students' voices are heard, IRHG provides its members with hands-on leadership opportunities. Additionally, IRHG seeks to improve the on-campus living experience of its constituents in providing programming and taking up issues of concern.
Creighton University’s Inter Residence Hall Government (IRHG) exists to fulfill the following:
• Serve as a voice for the residents.
IRHG functions as a channel of communication between the residents and the administration. IRHG establishes and facilitates an efficient network of communication encompassing residents, individual
Residence Hall Councils (RHCs), individual Apartment Councils (ACs), National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH), IRHG, and University administration.
• Sponsor student activities.
IRHG commits itself to encouraging a variety of activities for our residents. IRHG strives to build
community, celebrate diversity, and promote the social, educational, and spiritual development of each resident.
• Foster diversity.
