DigiPen Student Housing Council

The Student Housing Council is an elected body of residents that meets regularly to discuss the concerns of current residents and community members. Those concerns are then addressed by the residential community or taken to DigiPen Housing LLC staff for further discussion. The Student Housing Council is also responsible for planning at least two events a semester that bring the residential community together.  Residents are encouraged to get involved with the Student Housing Council and attend all sponsored events. More information regarding the Student Housing Council and the election process will be provided at New Resident Orientation.
