Hall Governments

Each residence hall community has a government body made up of representatives from each floor of the building. Elections are held in each hall in the beginning of fall semester. Hall government groups usually meet weekly in their halls:

  • Calhoun Hall Executive Council (CHEC)
  • Campus Park Governing Association
  • Campus Rec Center/Dabney Council (CRCDC)
  • Daniels Hall Association (DHA)
  • Government of Siddall Hall (GOSH)
  • Jefferson Advisory Council (JAC) - serving Turner and Schneider Halls
  • Morgens Hall Governing Association
  • Scioto Hall Association
  • Stratford Heights Association (SHA)
  • University Parks Apartments Association (UPAA)

Specific information on how to participate in hall government is at your front desk or you can talk to a staff member.

National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH)

The National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) is the premiere honorary supported by the leading international organization advocating for the interests and welfare of residence hall students, while also providing opportunities for their personal growth and development. Incorporated in 2016 the Queen City chapter of NRHH was created with the intention of upholding the pillars of Leadership, Recognition, Scholastics, and Service within not only the Bearcat community, but the greater Cincinnati area as well. NRHH strives to provide recognition for individuals who have contributed to the advancement of college and university housing. It ensures the advancement of member chapters through resource sharing, programming, and leadership development opportunities to contribute and support the vision of the National Association of College and University Residence Halls, Incorporated.

For more information, please visit NRHH's OrgSync portal here


Residence Hall Association (RHA)

In addition to hall government, there is a representative from each hall community to serve in the Residence Hall Association (RHA). RHA is the system-wide hall governance body for all of the UC residence hall communities and meets weekly.  RHA plans large-scale programs for over 5,000 residents on campus. Some of the annual programs are Relaxation Station, Sibs Weekend, International Taste and the Welcome Weekend Scavenger Hunt.

A portion of your room and board fee, called an activities fee, is given to fund the Residence Hall Association. You can use your voice to influence how these funds are used. Make an impact on your residential experience. The Residence Hall Association is looking for residents to join their team! Keeping our motto in mind, "Serving, representing and advocating for the on-campus student population." If you have any questions, please contact the RHA President via email or at 513-556-3567.
