|About||University of Charleston Residence Hall Association is a student organization that works to increase the on-campus residential experience of every student.|
The University of Charleston’s Residence Hall Association is a very young organization, which was chartered in the fall of 2007. Our purpose is to provide residents with an opportunity to become leaders in their immediate living community and amongst their peers. We also strive to promote the general welfare of the residence halls by acting as a forum through which residents, staff, administration and Student Life may discuss matters of mutual concern. We function today with the help and support of our seven member executive board, hall council members, two advisors and thirty general members. Our current membership is now flourishing with students who are passionate about residence life and are eager to making a difference in their communities.
RHA is affiliated with the National Association of College and University Residence Halls (NACURH) and the Central Atlantic Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls (CAACURH).
