Residence Hall Association

The Residence Hall Association is the governing student body of all residence halls and serves as the official voice of resident students. Who can belong to RHA? Everyone who resides in a University residence hall is automatically a member of RHA. That means you, your roommate and all your friends who live in the halls. RHA is here to represent YOU!

RHA is committed to continuously improving the on campus living experience for you at Fairleigh Dickinson University. They perform a variety of functions to serve the best interests of our residents in collaboration with the Office of Residence Life.

Be on the look out for advertisements announcing the first RHA meeting of the academic year. Get involved!
