On behalf of the Inter-Residence Hall Council (IRHC), I would like to welcome you to our website. The IRHC recognizes how important you are to the growth and the development of our organization. We also understand that the transition to college life is a difficult one and so our aim is to improve the quality of residence life for your child such that his/her experience at New York University is both enjoyable and memorable. We are so appreciative of your support. Without your contribution through the linens and refrigerator programs, we would not be able to provide leadership, community service and programmatic opportunities for your child. Below you find information about our vendor programs as well as links to their websites. We encourage you to take advantage of these services.
Throughout the year you will get a number of mailings from the IRHC. These mailings primarily deal with our following vendor programs and are of interest to you as a parent. If you receive an empty envelope please contact us and include your student’s name, the address, and the postmark so we can send out a replacement mailing.

The Inter-Residence Hall Council sponsors a care package program to help parents and family members connect with their student(s) during critical times of the year. Mailings are sent home during the year, and proceeds from this program are used for student leadership opportunities and programming.

New York University Care Package Program
Share your love and support all year long with the New York University care package program. A care package is the best way to remind your student that Mom and Dad are thinking of them on a birthday, a holiday, and during final exams. A care package says it all.
Each of our care packages are loaded with all of your student’s favorite snacks, including fresh baked cakes or cookies, fresh fruit, candy bars, and more! The best part is that you can include your own personal note to your student in every package. Don’t just show them how much you care, tell them!
For years, New York University has been offering the care package program to every student. We know the perfect time to send each package throughout the semester, just when your student really needs a boost.
Our goal, this year, is to ensure that every student receives at least one care package.
Your student is practically guaranteed to call home and say thank you when their package arrives. We offer a wide variety of options that will fit any budget and satisfy your student’s cravings. We even have gluten-free and peanut-free packages to choose from.
Here are some of the most popular care packages we can arrange for your student:
- Welcome Care Package
- Halloween Care Package
- Valentine’s Care Package
- Birthday Cake or Care Package
- Midterms Care Package
- Final Exams Care Package
- Graduation Care Package

“Just wanted to let you know that you do an amazing job! My daughter and her friends (I sent them gift baskets also) said that they are wonderful! Great job and thank you for having this service! I love it and love sending them to my daughter!” - Yolanda S, parent.
We encourage your child to become active in their residential communities as well as the Inter-Residence Hall Council. It’s a great opportunity to meet new people, grow as a leader and affect change within and beyond the university. Again we thank you for your support and help.
