Residence Hall Association

The Residence Hall Association (RHA) provides a student voice to the University and the Office of Residence Life and Housing.

Since receiving official recognition as a student organization on May 16, 1988, the Residence Hall Association has been guided by the ideas and ideals laid out in our vision statement: RHA strives to develop a strong on-campus residential community through programming, facilities improvements, provision of leadership opportunities, and by serving as a liaison between resident students and Wake Forest administrators.

The organization serves the residential student body in three primary ways:

  1. Making student-requested improvements to residence halls
  2. Advocating for the residential experience
  3. Building community for the Wake Forest residential student body

It is a unique group of students that work together to improve the residential aspects of student life.

The Residence Hall Association meets weekly.

Building Improvements

RHA works to improve the residential experience in a number of ways, one of which is building improvements.  Residence hall building improvements range from recreational equipment (ex. ping pong tables), study aids (ex. whiteboards), furniture, and entertainment (ex. televisions).

Residential Programs

RHA helps create a sense of community on campus by putting on fun and interesting activities for Wake Forest students.  RHA mixes together annual favorites like PigSkin PigOut, Treasure Hunt, and Exam Breaks with new events that RHA members create every year. RHA is also open to co-sponsoring campus events that benefit the student body.


RHA provides a student voice to the Office of Residence Life and Housing and represents the interests of the general student body in University decision making.
