External Affilitate

The University of Guelph is part of two regional organizations the Great Lakes Affiliate of Collage and University Residence Halls (GLACURH) and the National Association of College and University Residence Halls (NACURH). These affiliates bring together student leaders from around the region.

GLACURH

Great Lakes Association of College and University Residence Halls

MOWII – Michigan, Ontario, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana

GLACURH is the Great Lakes Affiliates of College and University Residence Halls and it is a sub-region of a greater sized organization. This conference is held in November every year and includes delegations from Ontario, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin. These conferences can take place anywhere within our region, so these 4 states and Ontario. At this conference you will travel with a smaller delegation ranging from 8 – 14 people, including our advisor and the Vice-President Communications. Here you will learn about leadership and involvement on a greater scale and will be able to develop relationships with hundreds of people you may never have had the chance to meet otherwise. This is a life-changing conference and one you wouldn’t want to miss out on!

NACURH

National Association of College and University Residence Halls

NACURH is the National Affiliates of College and University Residence Halls and is the largest student run organization in the world. We include schools from Canada, United States, Qatar, Hong Kong, Australia, South Africa, and Mexico. This is a massive scale conference usually held in the United States and houses roughly 4000 delegates. This conference promotes living on campus as an integral part of the university experience, and strives to provide resources to help member schools create the ultimate residence hall environment and experience. There is no other conference quite like this one and it is a very special opportunity many schools and students don’t ever experience. Usually around 6 delegates go from the University of Guelph every year and the conference happens in the beginning of June.
