The House System - an ISU Tradition
Every student who lives in an on-campus residence hall is a member of a specific house. Each house consists of 40 to 60 students who live on the same floor or section of their residence hall.
The house system is one of Iowa State's great traditions and provides residents with a great way to meet new people and get involved in social, educational, and cultural events. Residents elect a house cabinet to help them plan and implement house programs.
Most houses are named after historical figures or individuals who had a significant relationship with ISU. To find out who your house is named after, review the information on that house's web page.
