Residence Hall Association

About RHA

RHA (Residence Hall Association) is a university-sponsored student organization representative of all 16,000+ students who live on campus. It serves as the governing body of the residence halls and the platform through which students share their voice and perspective with the leadership of University Residences. The members of RHA are responsible for providing input to develop ideas for activities and programs that improve and enhance the residence hall experience. They also provide diverse social, and educational programs within the residence halls, manage community enhancements, advocate for residents’ needs, facilitate recognition of residence hall leaders, and foster a sense of community and belonging for Purdue on-campus students.  RHA is a co-sponsor of my residence hall and campus events and provides support and resources for individual hall clubs.
