Residence Hall Association

RHA logo

The Residence Hall Association (RHA) is a student-run organization designed to represent UMass Lowell's residential students. Its focus is to bring positive change to the residential experience through student engagement and advocacy initiatives. RHA is the vehicle that helps amplify the resident student voice, engages with resident feedback, and supports proposed changes brought on from resident peers to the Office of Residence Life and campus partners. In addition, all on-campus residents are automatic members of the organization and reap the benefits of RHA’s advocacy efforts! If you’re all about making the residence halls a better place for you and your peers, then RHA is your place to be!

For Fall 2022, meetings currently take place weekly on Mondays at 7 p.m. in University Suites 106.
