About Our Website
We are excited to have launched this website in 2014. After seeking feedback from our members, from exhibitors, and from our board, we knew that an updated website was important to our members and necessary to move our association forward. After careful research and months of planning and development, we launched this site with hope that it will continue to meet he needs of the association for years to come..

GLACUHO sponsors nine committees, each charged with covering a range of topics that impact student housing. Each committee develops educational materials and resources, plans and presents programs at the conference, organizes and facilitates free webinars, and sponsors other impactful initiatives.
