The Innis Residence Council (IRC) is a student-run governing council for the students who live at Innis Residence throughout the academic year. The IRC is composed of 5 executive members who are elected by the residents, 6 Senior House Representatives, 6 Junior House Representatives, and 5 committee chairs. All residents are welcome to attend the bi-weekly IRC meetings.
The mission of the IRC is to provide support and encourage unity among residents by organizing residence-wide events, such as: monthly House Olympics; social outings; and trips around Innis and Toronto. The IRC gives students the chance to get involved in the Innis community and provides opportunities to develop leadership skills by providing moral and monetary support for clubs, suite events, and committees.

The Innis Residence is a community that places a high value on individual and collective responsibility, on co-operation, on a concern for others, and on creating an atmosphere conducive to learning. Life in the Residence requires a commitment from everyone: the welfare and development of the community are as important as the welfare and development of each student who lives in it.
The Residence also places great value on diversity. Residents come from different Faculties at the University, and from different places, and each has a unique background and personal history. This diversity is respected; indeed, it is one of the great values of residence life. Overall, the Innis Residence endeavors to provide an environment where its members may continue to work on academic and personal growth and development.

Long before you actually arrive at the Residence, your planning begins! You need to put together a list of things you’ll want to bring with you to make your residence room at Innis feel like “Home Suite Home”. However, there are some things that you really don’t need to pack because they are provided for you.
See the About the Residence page to see what furniture and items are provided for you.
