Designing Sustainable Communities for Living and Learning

Patterson Hall

Residence Hall Association (RHA)

The Residence Hall Association (RHA) is a government exclusive to on-campus students at the University of South Carolina. All on-campus residents are members of RHA.

RHA represents the interests of the residents at USC. The organization serves as both a governing body and a programming body. Each residence hall at the University of South Carolina has a Hall Government. Three representatives from each Hall Government attend a weekly Senate Meeting on Tuesday nights at 7:00 p.m. Resolutions asking for visitation plan changes, smoking issues on-campus and legal downloading have been debated in the past.

Additionally, the Hall Government plans programming for their residence halls. Many programs are on safety, diversity, sustainability and wellness and these programs serve as an opportunity for residents to meet each other and enjoy their residential community at USC.

RHA seeks to improve the on-campus living experience by advocating for their residents, providing opportunities to meet residents’ needs and representing the residents at the University of South Carolina.
