Get Involved

The Residence Halls offer many opportunities for involvement and leadership. On a weekly basis you can find small- and large-scale events, ranging from Hunger Game tournaments, to glow in the dark volleyball, to movie nights. Within the residence halls we provide over 135 leadership positions. Residence Hall life is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity where you will build character, create memories, develop as an individual and form lifelong friendships. Learn about our student government and get involved!

Goals for this year?
This is the start of my third year at UI and I have been involved in RHA ever since the beginning of my freshman year. It has been a wonderful ride that has completely changed my experience here over the past couple of years. This year, I hope to share and extend that experience to all of the amazing students in the residence halls through all of the fun programs that I'll be putting on this year!

Goals for this year?
As a freshman at the University of Idaho, being part of RHA has enhanced my first year experience! I hope to get the University nationally recognized while working with Allison, the current NCC. Furthermore, I hope to improve connections between our four residence halls to promote an even friendlier and more united environment for my fellow Vandals.

Don't just live, lead! The Residence Hall Association (RHA) is a student-led organization that seeks to train leaders to represent their communities in advocating for the betterment of the residence halls. All students living within the residence halls have voting rights on how community funds are spent and may exercise these rights within their community through the RHA.  Additionally, RHA is a programming and leadership development group that plans large-scale programs for students.  RHA and community leaders meet every Monday night at 6 p.m. in the Trout Room by the 24-Hour Information Desk.

If you are seeking funds from RHA, you will need to complete the RHA Senate-Allocation Request Form.

Each residence hall has a community council made up of a President, Vice President, RHA Senator, and Programming Chair. Each community also has Hall/Floor Representatives. These councils provide a variety of services and programming opportunities for residents. Their goal is to plan social activities and work towards improving amenities and services within their communities. Community Councils report to the RHA and are great ways to get involved and lead while living on campus. You will receive information on your Community Councils and opportunities for involvement once you move into the residence halls.

The Vandal National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) Chapter is comprised of the top 1% of student leaders living in the residence halls. NRHH is a national organization that focuses on recognizing student leaders and services throughout the residence halls. The Vandal NRHH Chapter works to recognize a Person of the Week (POTW) and Leader of the Week (LOTW). The chapter also works to nominate and judge "Of the Month" (OTM) awards, one of the highest forms of recognition in the halls. If you would like to complete an "of the week" or "of the month" nomination, fill out the below forms.
