Residence Hall Association

The Residence Hall Association (commonly referred to as RHA) is the umbrella organization of the residence hall councils of Clark University. The association is composed of a student-run executive board, and a general assembly consisting of a representative from all of the residential halls. RHA is a major programming body on campus and funds various endeavors in pursuit of enhancing the quality of life on campus, with events ranging from sporting events to activities during the Week of Happiness. This organization meets weekly to plan for events, hear proposals, and discuss concerns and issues related to life in the residence halls. Members are selected each spring for various leadership opportunities. For more information contact RHA@clarku.edu

Clark University is proud to honor students who have devoted their time and energy to the residence community. A chapter of the National Residence Hall Honorary was established to recognize residents who have made outstanding contributions.

Hall Council

Hall Councils are made up of appointed or elected students within the specific hall and assists in providing peer to peer programming for those who live with each Hall. The nature and structure of each Hall Council varies from building to building these residents who work closely with the Residential Life staff to provide input on housing policies and coordinate a variety of educational and social activities to complement academic development.
