What is RHA?
RHA is your Residence Hall Association. We are the governing body representing resident students of Portland State University. RHA is the voice of the residents within the residence halls. Programming put on by RHA includes various fun and educational activities as well as the wonderful community garden. These programs, which are initiated, sponsored, and funded by RHA, are well received and enjoyed by the residents of each hall community. To keep all of these great things going it is important to have strong leaders.
We advocate for the interests and welfare of residents, while also providing opportunities for their personal growth and development. We are an organization of students committed to developing leadership, honoring diversity, recognizing achievements, as well as stimulating engagement and involvement among students who reside in University Housing.
