Inter Residence Council

Inter Residence Council

The Inter-Residence Council (IRC) is the chief representative body of the 3500+ on-campus residents of UNSW to the UNSW administration and local community. The IRC is responsible for, and has authority to advocate on behalf of residents living at UNSW in relation to any matter that has an impact on residents, no matter how large or small. The IRC also acts as a forum for inter-residential discussion, knowledge sharing, and co-operation in a range of different fields.


Volunteers can represent their residence, help steer the direction of the IRC or be part of sub-committees organising events throughout the semester.
