Welcome to the American University Residence Hall Association!

Celebrating 50 Years of Service


Who We Are


For the last 50 years the RHA has been advocating on behalf of the student population on campus. From issues ranging from food accessibility across campus to hygiene products in residential bathrooms the Residence Hall Association has been at the forefront in addressing student concerns to the administration on campus.


Throughout the entire semester you can find an RHA event happening nearly every week! Across the six hall councils and the executive board, RHA events are designed with community building at mind. Our goal for each event is to ensure they are as inclusive as possible. Stay up to date with the events we put on by following us on social media!


Members of the RHA were elected by their peers to serve and represent their residence halls. Each fall elections are held for sixty positions in the hall councils and general assembly. In addition, thousands of students vote each election cycle for the students they believe can serve the student body the best.
