NRHH is a department-sponsored student organization comprised of exemplary residential students who value recognition and service. NRHH is dedicated to acknowledge residents in our residence halls who have shown exceptional leadership and service toward the improvement of Housing and Residence Life and the surrounding community. NRHH 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.
