Residence Hall Association

The goal of the Residence Hall Association (RHA) is to make residence life an unforgettable experience and to ensure that residents' voices are heard. RHA is a liaison among the residence hall students, Campus Housing, and the university community. RHA is committed to developing student leaders on campus. RHA is a great opportunity for students to develop themselves as leaders, learn how to develop programs, market events, network with their peers at conferences, and build relationships and communities in their halls.

Other interesting facts about RHA include:

  • All on campus residents are automatic members.
  • RHA provides programming within the halls and campus wide.
  • RHA advocates for residents by figuring out what they want, ensuring residents have services to benefit them, and create opportunities for residents to meet with other student leaders and housing and university administration.
  • RHA is made up of six (6) Executive Council officers. Officers are elected each Spring. Elected officers through RHA include:
    • Executive President
    • Vice President of Administration
    • Coordinating Officer of Marketing and Events
    • Coordinating Officer of Advocacy
    • Coordinating Officer of Hall Council Development
    • National Association of Colleges and University Residence Halls (NACURH) Communications Coordiator

Hall Councils

  • Every residence hall has its own Hall Council responsible for programming, addressing areas of concern for the residents of that hall, and building community within each hall.
  • Hall Councils will be formed in during the Fall semester, shortly after move-in. Each Hall Council will select officers to represent them to the RHA. Hall Council Officers include:
    • President
    • Vice President
    • Programming Chair
    • Campus Outreach Officer
  • The representatives manage funds for events and make purchases of equipment needed for the hall.
  • Watch for signs about meetings and elections posted in your hall.
