Cal State LA RHA

Cal State LA’s Residence Hall Association (RHA) is an organization made up of dedicated residents, who act as agents of opportunity to promote a thriving academic and social environment while voicing the concerns of the community. RHA helps develop leadership skills as well as intercultural and interpersonal growth.

We welcome creative, enthusiastic and energetic people interested in making a difference in their community.



RHA consists of over 20 student leaders and a staff advisor. The Executive Board has a president and four vice presidents who oversee programming, external affairs, finance and administration. The board also has several senators who act as official representatives for the students living in Phase I, Phase II and Golden Eagles Apartments. There are six commissioners who handle fundraising, marketing and public relations, sustainability, outreach, multicultural programming, and the National Residence Hall Honorary, which recognizes exceptional students, programs, and community service within the residence halls.
