Welcome to the Residence Hall Assembly! RHA is the umbrella organization for the Hall Associations in each building. We consist of representatives from each residence hall and serves as an advocacy group for student issues. They represent the residents living on campus to Residential and Student Service Programs (RSSP) and to other groups that impact residential life. RHA coordinates many campus-wide activities and programs and recommends policy changes to RSSP. If you have questions about Assembly activities or want to learn more about how to become involved, contact the RHA at The RHA is housed in the Residential Leadership Office located at Unit 1, L -03 Christian Hall.


The Residence Hall Assembly (RHA) of the University of California, Berkeley is the student-run government body in the residence halls, structured around the importance of providing student representation in the decisions that affect residents and their community. Representing over 8000 students in Berkeley’s residential community, the assembly is an important link to the Berkeley community and campus. The assembly’s motto is to improve the quality of life in the residence halls and with this in mind RHA works with the division of Residential and Student Service Programs, campus officials, the City of Berkeley, residence hall systems throughout the continent and other on-campus organizations. We are an affiliate of the regional association PACURH (Pacific Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls), which in turn is a subset of the national group NACURH (National Association of College and University Residence Halls).
