Residence Hall Association

About Us


The UNCW Residence Hall Association (RHA) is the governing body over all of the area councils for the on-campus student population. RHA holds weekly meetings where student concerns are addressed, and programs are planned. The Executive Board of RHA is made up of the President, Vice President of Programming, Vice President of Finance and Administration, National Communications Coordinator, a National Communications Coordinator In-Training, Vice President of Public Relations, Vice President of Community Service, and Vice President of Leadership and Development. In addition to the executive board, RHA requires one representative from each of the residential area councils to attend the weekly RHA meetings. Any student may attend the meetings throughout the year.


A large part of what RHA does is campus programming, including a leadership developing retreat for each area chapter, the campus visitation program for incoming freshmen, and an open forum for students to bring housing concerns. Students in RHA also attend conferences each year. These conferences are a time for student housing leaders to organize and present successful programs, which can then be shared with other campuses. Conferences are a time to celebrate school spirit, teamwork, and dedication to the campus community.


RHA has taken several steps to better the organization by having the body evaluate the executive board through performance evaluations, collaborating on programs between area chapters, and by participating in programs with other student organizations such as the Student Government Association.
