Residence Hall Association - About

The Residence Hall Association (RHA) is the student governing body for the UAA residence halls and apartments and is made up of students like you. Members of RHA help create policies, host open forums to discuss residents' concerns, and plan fun events open to all students. These events usually include dances, sporting events and karaoke nights.

RHA has a direct voice in University governance activities via a voting seat on student government (USUAA). RHA is not only a great place to meet friends and get your voice heard but also gives you a chance to contribute to an academic and diverse residential environment while expanding your resume. RHA is a great way to get involved!
