Residence Hall Association
Welcome to RHA! The Residence Hall Association is a student-led organization dedicated
to bringing high-quality programming to the residents of the University of Dallas.
Programs and activities range in variety from social to educational to recreational
in order to strengthen the resident hall community and provide an overall healthier
and more enjoyable living environment.
Each hall elects two representatives per floor every year to direct its specific events.
These representatives meet every week with their appointed interns and professional
staff advisor. Each meeting is led by the three interns and advisor as they assist
in planning a multitude of events per semester.
RHA requires that its representatives have energy, responsibility, and perception
in order to provide satisfactory programs that correspond to the interests of their
halls. During their term, all RHA representatives must attend the weekly RHA meetings.
Using RHA funds, they must plan and execute at least two side of campus events and
three events for their respective halls. All job descriptions and responsibilities
are outlined in the RHA Constitution.
