What is RHA?

The Residence Hall Association is an organization established to promote interaction among residence halls.  In order to achieve this purpose, RHA provides services and activities for the benefit of the residents.

RHA is here to represent the residents in UWW Residence Halls, bring leadership and programs to foster community and to provide social, cultural, and intellectual development. We also review and uphold University Housing policies and procedures and act as a link between administration and the residents.

RHA feels that by doing this, communication and cooperation between the residence halls and other university organizations will formulate maximum representation of the residence hall students.

Funds Request

Each semester a RA can request up to $50, and will be reimbursed after we receive a receipt. Additionally, we also allow requests from outside organizations.

In order to request funds please fill out the correct Funds Request form below and bring it to the RHA office, 228 Goodhue Hall, during office hours. You will be asked to speak at a meeting in order for the assembly to approve your request. Meetings are normally held on Wednesdays at 7pm in UC 259.  Please check the Facebook page on Wednesdays to confirm the meeting time and location every week!

The Residence Hall Association recognizes those who work hard, think positively, never give up, and set good examples for others to follow.
The You Rule Award is given out to any member of the residence halls who deserves to be recognized for their hard work and spirit for the week.  Recipients may be nominated by any resident of the UW-Whitewater campus, and the winners of these awards will be announced at each RHA meeting.  E-mail RHAassist@uww.edu to submit a You Rule award today!

People love to be recognized, so take the steps to recognize them!
