Residence Hall Association

rha group picture

The Residence Hall Association (RHA) is a student government representing all students living on-campus. RHA is structured around the importance of providing student representation and input in the decisions that affect residents. It is also the umbrella organization for the Area Councils - the student governments in each building. RHA coordinates events, advocates for residents, and holds regular assembly meetings and occasional town halls both of which are open to all residents.

RHA has a seven-member student Executive Board that organizes events and facilitates RHA committees and bi-weekly general assembly meetings. General Assembly meetings provide RHA and Area Council members an opportunity to discuss issues and plan events together. All residents are welcome to attend these meetings to raise issues and provide input.  Residents are also welcome to apply to attend annual conferences at both the regional (PACURH - Pacific Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls) and national levels (NACURH - National Association of College and University Residence Halls). Look for application information at the beginning of each semester.

Hello everyone! My name is Saffi, and this is my second year as Vice President of Finance with RHA. I’m a 5th-year Biology major with a concentration in Forensic Science and a minor in Chemistry. I’m from SoCal and one of the reasons I came to Cal State East Bay was to get a fresh start and be far enough from home to be able to do my own thing but to also be close enough to home to be able to travel home for the holidays. I am an email away if you have any questions, I hope to see you all at some of our lovely events!
