We the Residence Hall Association aim to facilitate social, academic, and personal growth through intentional programming, while serving as the voice of the diverse residential population at Florida International University.


The Residence Hall Association (RHA) Executive Board would like to welcome you to an amazing year in your new home here at Florida International University.

One of the many important decisions you must make while at the university is where you will live. By choosing to live in the residence halls , you have taken the first step in opening new doors, behind which lay vast opportunities that all come with your on-campus experience. We encourage you to seek out and take advantage of every resource that is made available for you. Get extra tutoring help from the A-Team. Academic, social and recreational programs take place every day in the residence halls. The diversity of programs provides useful and insightful information that is endless and as wide as you can envision. The skills, closeness and lifetime friendships that you develop as a result will ease your transition into the university and the FIU residence hall community.

In addition, we would like to encourage you to take advantage of the other resources and organizations that are offered at FIU. Join you hall council, help plan events with RHA, frequent on-campus comedy shows, attend an FIU athletic event, volunteer in the local community, or play on your hall intramural team. No matter what your interests, the opportunities are plentiful and all provide a worthwhile and unique experience.

The Residence Hall Association provides an array of programs, events, and most importantly, a voice for you. RHA not only acts as the liaison for you within our housing community, but as well as within the University community via the Student Government Association. Attend our monthly general meetings that last Wednesday of every month in a lounge near you. Please feel free to visit us in the RHA office located in Lakeview North. We invite you to provide
suggestions as to how we can make residential life a better experience during your academic endeavors.
