a UAH housing desk assistant helps a student

Residence Hall Association (RHA)

RHA is a department-sponsored student organization dedicated to providing diverse social, educational, and philanthropic programs within the residence halls. They also recognize leaders in the community and look for ways to improve the experience of living on campus. RHA also provides residents with the opportunity to attend state, regional, and national leadership conferences where students can connect and learn from their peers at other institutions. These conferences allow UAH students to grow as leaders and bring back exciting new ideas to campus.

All residents are welcome to join and participate in RHA. RHA has hall reps for each community, which is a great way for first year residents to get involved. RHA raises funds for their efforts via the care packages and linens sold via OCM.

For more information about how to get involved in RHA in your community, please email residencehallassociation@uah.edu
