About the Residence Hall Association

The Residence Hall Association (RHA) is the student led governing body of all residence halls on campus, similar to a Student Senate.  We strive to connect students to the UNC campus and provide leadership opportunities.  We host events and aim to create an enjoyable experience for students during their time in our residence halls.

What RHA Does

RHA is housed under the same department as RAs (Housing and Residential Education) but our job descriptions are quite different.RHA is the voice of the 3,000+ students living on campus. Our main concerns are improving the on campus living experience by advocating for change and improvements and free programming.

We also offer leadership development in ways of leadership positions and opportunities to attend leadership retreats as well as regional and national conferences.

Outside of Meetings

RHA does fundraising for conference costs, philanthropy for the university and the Greeley community, and also sponsors free events for all students to attend.We also attend national conferences to represent UNC and network with other schools. RHA offers several student-run committees.

At the end of the year we put on a banquet to celebrate the accomplishments for each hall, members of RHA or Community Council, and students who have made a difference in the residence halls.
