Residence Hall Association

The Residence Hall Association (RHA) serves residents by creating a living and learning experience within University-owned residence halls. RHA serves as a representative body and voice between residents and the Associated Students, University Administration, student organizations, residence hall staff, and the Chico community.


• promotes student intellectual, educational, cultural, physical, and social welfare;

• designs and facilitates programs and informational services for all residents;

• provides opportunities for residents to achieve fuller participation in our campus community through leadership growth and development.

Get Involved

RHA is the umbrella organization that supports individual Hall Councils and is involved in promoting professional development and  leadership growth of all members.  RHA is responsible for the development of Fall Spirit Week and other recognition events to help promote unity and spirit among its members.

In August, recruitment will begin for 3-5 leadership positions.  Do you have the experience to lead?  Information about recruitment will be sent to you during the summer—keep an eye out!  Additional leadership opportunities will be promoted at move-in and through your Resident Advisor.
