The University of Colorado Boulder Residence Hall Association recognizes living on campus as an integral part of the college experience, and therefore strives to be the organization of choice for residence hall leaders. We do this by providing comprehensive opportunities and resources for university students seeking to create the ultimate residence hall environment and experience.
CU Boulder RHA is a student-run organization dedicated to advocating for the interests and welfare of residence hall students, while also providing opportunities for their personal growth and development. It is an organization of students committed to developing leadership, honoring diversity, recognizing achievement, promoting scholarship, as well as stimulating engagement and involvement among students who reside in the residence halls. Through legislation, fair representation from each hall and open discussion of issues facing students, the Residence Hall Association acts as the voice of students living in the residence halls to the university and the administration.
Senate meetings are where all Community Council senators come together to listen and decide on legislation that other students have come up with. Events going around campus are presented to the senate as well as other organizations coming and talking. Senate meetings are important components in making CU residence halls the best that they can be since they represent the students living in the residence halls.
RHA strives to create a safe and inclusive home for all students living on campus. The Advocacy Council is responsible for coordinating advocacy campaigns and initiatives to educate peers around inclusion, coordinate fun events to eliminate cultural taboos, and develop social change projects to improve the residential experience of current and future students. Past advocacy initiatives include a commitment to sustainable programming, our traditional Consent Carnival program, and advocacy for more effective and impactful bus routes for our residential students.
If you want to be a part of a group of change makers working toward social justice and innovation, apply to be an Advocacy Liaison to join the Advocacy Council.
RHA hosts several signature events on campus including Connect at the Rec and Haunted Halls. The Board of Activities and Events is a committee of RHA that plans and coordinates large scale campus events for all students living on campus. These large scale events are designed to develop community across the residence halls and provide stimulating engagement and involvement opportunities.
If you are interested in being a part of planning opportunities to connect with other students living on campus, collaborating with other organizations on campus, and having FUN, apply to be a Programming & Outreach Liaison to join the Board of Activities and Events!
