RHA is the student government in the residence halls, aiming to create a strong and vibrant community in the university housing community. Our organization provides opportunities for the enrichment of the lives of our residents, including events & programs such as Pre-Class Bash, Siblings’ Weekend & more!

“We are an assembly of representatives from each of the residence halls on campus.”

We are lead by an 7 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 6 committees comprised of assembly members and non-members.

Our constitution can be found here: RHA Constitution
