University Housing offers exciting opportunities for residents to get involved in the community.

RHA is also the umbrella organization and central coordinating group for Residence Hall Councils/Governments and resident run clubs which provide similar opportunities for resident involvement and leadership within their individual Residence Halls/Communities.

On a larger scale, RHA is a member of the Pacific Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls (PACURH), as well as the National Association of College and University Residence Halls (NACURH) RHA also works with their sister organization NRHH, the National Residence Hall Honorary, to promote scholastics, recognition, service and leadership on the SF State campus.

Everyone who lives on campus, regardless of whether or not they are involved in a student organization or as a student leader, is a member of RHA and is welcome and encouraged to participate in community events and attend regularly held RHA General Assembly Meetings nicknamed “Quorum” for the group’s usage of Parliamentary Procedure .

Roles of RHA

  • To bring together student leaders to have fun
  • To act in the best interests of residents at local and larger campus levels
