National Residence Hall Honorary

NRHH Eboard 2017-2018

What is NRHH?

The National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) is an organization which represents the top 1% of student leaders living on the University of North Carolina Wilmington campus. The UNC Wilmington chapter is known as Psi Phi. We accept new members based on their involvement in residential communities as well as the campus as a whole, their desire to be part of our organization, and meet necessary criteria like GPA which must be 2.5 or higher.

In 1964, the National Association of College and University Residence Halls, Inc. (NACURH) created the National Residence Hall Honorary with the primary focus of recognizing leaders within residence halls. As promoted by the NRHH national website, "A leadership-based honorary comprised of exemplary residential students who value recognition and service." Currently, NRHH thrives on over 200 NACURH affiliated college campuses in the form of student-lead chapters. Each chapter of student leader's values: Leadership, Recognition, and Service. The organization has been successful because of our commitment to enrich on-campus student living through resource sharing, programming, and leadership development opportunities to contribute and support the vision of the National Association of College and University Residence Halls, Incorporated.

Our Values


All members of National Resiedence Hall Honorary are leaders across campus. They hold positions such as resident assistants, Residence Hall Association (RHA) Executive Board members, area council executive board members, orientation leaders, and many more.


As an organization, NRHH puts value on serving the community. Throughout the year we host a variety of service projects ranging from helping the homeless in many ways, supporting off-campus non-profits such as Miracle League, working with the Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity, and support many on-campus initiatives.


A very important part of NRHH is the recognition of others. Through the submission of, Of the Month (OTM's) awards, NRHH is able to recognize the strong individuals and programs on UNC Wilmington's campus. Each month members and campus residents are able to submit OTMs in a variety of categories. One can submit an OTM for their RA, a special program, a friend who did something kind, or a staff/faculty member who makes our campus so amazing. NRHH constantly reminds residents of the power of recognition and the importance of random acts of kindness.
