A house party in the English-speaking world is typically a type of party where medium to large groups of people gather at a house or apartment of the party's host. The people present at any one party may contain high school, secondary school, college, university students, and/or adults of varying ages, depending on the groups of people concerned. House Parties often nearly always feature food (e.g. buffet) and drink (often alcohol), sometimes music, dancing, as well as general conversation or social interaction (including that of a sexual nature). Consumption of illegal drugs occurs at some parties.

Such parties are classified as house parties in order to distinguish them from parties that may take place in college halls of residence and other places on campuses.
