Residential Housing Association


Residence Hall Association logo

The Residential Housing Association (RHA) at San Francisco State University is the governing body for the residential community and sponsors numerous activities with both educational and social programs throughout the year. Some of the programs that RHA has sponsored include the Halloween Harvest Festival and Haunted House, monthly Movie Nights, a breast cancer awareness volleyball tournament, and various other community programs, including excursions into downtown San Francisco. Additionally, RHA oversees the Housing Advisory Panel (HAP) which connects residents to University Administrators and helps communicate concerns of student residents. All of this is done in order to enhance the residents’ experiences while living on campus.

Everyone who lives on campus, regardless of whether or not they are involved in the student organization as a student leader, is a member of RHA and is welcome and encouraged to participate in community events.

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
  • To develop leadership skills in students
  • To encourage participation of residents in the community

To become involved in one of the many programs and organizations happening in the Residence Community, email, or stop by the Front Desk of any Residence Community.
