The House of Councillors (Berber: Agraw n ismittiren, Arabic: مجلس المستشارين) is the upper house of the Parliament of Morocco and has 270 members, elected for a nine-year term, elected by local councils (162 seats), professional chambers (91 seats) and wage-earners (27 seats).

The 2011 Constitution of Morocco retained this second chamber, but reduced its term of office from 9 to 6 years.
