Executive Board Applications Live!

The Residence Hall Association (RHA) is a national student-led organization that develops student leaders as they “bring home to the halls”. RHA is a student organization commonly found on college and university campuses, and it is affiliated with NACURH (National Association of College and University Residence Halls), which is a larger organization encompassing residence hall governments and associations from across North America. Here are some fun facts about RHA:

Purpose and Activities
  •  RHA typically aims to enhance the residential experience for students living on campus. They often organize events, activities, and initiatives to foster a sense of community, promote student leadership, and advocate for the needs and interests of residents.
  •  RHA members may participate in various committees focused on programming, advocacy, leadership development, and community service.
NACURH Affiliation
  •  NACURH is the largest student-run organization in the world, dedicated to representing the interests of residential students. It provides a platform for networking, sharing best practices, and collaborating on projects and initiatives related to residential life.
  • RHA chapters that are affiliated with NACURH can benefit from resources, training opportunities, conferences, and the chance to connect with other student leaders and organizations from different campuses.
  • The highlight of NACURH’s calendar is the annual national conference, which brings together RHA members, advisors, and housing professionals from across North America for several days of networking, educational sessions, keynote speeches, and social events.
    The Scarlet Knight Chapter attends both regional and one national conference per academic year!
Recognition and Awards
  • Both RHA  and NRHH chapters and individual members can receive recognition and awards through their involvement with NACURH. These awards often celebrate excellence in programming, leadership, advocacy, sustainability, diversity, and innovation within the residential community.
  • Winning NACURH awards can boost a chapter’s reputation, attract new members, and showcase their achievements on a national platform.

  • Through collaboration with other campus organizations and departments, RHA can contribute to a positive campus culture and support students’ personal and academic growth.
