Residence Hall Association (RHA)
The Residence Hall Association (RHA) is the representative governing body of all on-campus residents, and works in collaboration with the Department of Residential Life by reviewing and recommending changes in regulations, policies, and physical facilities pertinent and beneficial to students living on campus.
The RHA mission is to develop, connect, and involve the community of LSU residents. RHA strives to develop the community through multiple social and leadership opportunities. RHA endeavors to connect the community by exchanging ideas and information at local, regional, and national conferences, and by programming to a diverse body of students. RHA aims to increase the involvement of LSU residents in campus activities by creating a promising, supportive, and positive environment. RHA
As the second largest student organization at LSU, RHA has a place for everyone. Each residence hall and apartment community has a Community Council – composed of student officers elected by on-campus residents – that represents each hall during RHA general assembly meetings, plans social and educational programs for its community, and works with the community’s professional staff to improve the quality of life for residents.
RHA also organizes and sponsors educational, social, and leadership activities of benefit and interest to on-campus residents, like its annual crawfish boil, move-in block party, Homecoming week’s Splatterbeat, and more. Get involved early on campus and serve on your hall’s Community Council to open a world of leadership opportunities.
