RHA is the student government in the residence halls, aiming to create a strong and vibrant community in the university housing community. We work with students and housing to create the best possible experience for our residents through programming and advocacy work. Some of our long standing programs include Pre-Class Bash and Siblings’ Weekend but keep and eye out for new and exciting programs.

We are lead by a seven member Executive Board. Our general assembly is comprised of representatives from each of the residence halls on campus. They act as liaisons between their own Hall and Multicultural Councils and the community of representatives: the RHA assembly. There are seven committees comprised of both representatives and unaffiliated students. These committees are dedicated to working on the behalf of the residents and are wonderful opportunities for leadership, community and pride.
