Resident Hall Association (RHA)

The Resident Hall Association (RHA) is a group devoted to enhancing the residential experience for all on campus students at Puget Sound.  RHA programs are fun and exciting, as can be seen through activities like our award-winning Casino Night or LoggerDaze Homecoming events.  In addition, we offer programs that make living on campus more convenient, such as our refrigerator rental and linens programs.  The RHA is here for you!

The RHA Executive Board consists of five members.  The five executive positions include a President, Vice-president/National Communications Coordinator (NCC), Director of Business Services, Director of Administration and Recognition, and a Director of Publicity. This executive board provides support through training, regular weekly meetings, and leadership opportunities for the Hall Governments. The RHA Executive Board works closely with the Hall Govs and other campus and community organizations to create programs and activities for all on-campus students, whether you live in a residence hall or a campus house.

RHA meets Thursdays during the academic year at 6 p.m. in Wyatt 109 for General Council. Meetings are open to any member of the residential community. If you are looking for funding for an event that benefits the on-campus student population, please use the RHA Funding Proposal. 

Stop by our meetings to hear about what is going on around campus specifically for residential students, or get involved to have a say in what events your student funds are supporting!

RHA Constitution

One of RHA’s main functions is to help organize and operate the Hall Government within each of our residence halls on campus.  Each of our residence halls elects five members from their hall to serve as their representatives to the rest of campus.  Each Hall Gov consists of five executive members: President, Treasurer, Secretary, Programmer, and Publicist.  These members work closely with the RHA and represent their hall in the General Council meetings.  In addition, they organize individual Hall Gov meetings and work with the RA (Resident Assistant) Staff to plan great programming for their fellow residents.

The RHA extends beyond campus as well and is connected to campuses across the regional and national level.  As a part of the Pacific Affiliate for College and University Residence Halls (PACURH), the RHA maintains contact with colleges and universities in Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Alaska, Hawaii, and even British Columbia and Australia.  Through the National Association of College and University Residence Halls (NACURH), the RHA also maintains contact with institutions across the United States.
