RHA/Hall Council

UC has many great student involvement organizations including hall government, the Residence Hall Association and the National Residence Hall Honorary, which are local chapters of two national organizations. Each organization has a voice in residential programming and provides leadership opportunities for members.

Residence Hall Association

In addition to hall government, there is a representative from each residence 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 used 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."
