Being involved on-campus and within the residence
halls is one of the best ways to get the most out of
your college experience! Students involved with
URHA or the Residence Hall Council
go on to become RAs and active leaders of UT's
Residence Hall Council (RHC) Everyone who resides in a University residence hall is automatically a member of their hall's RHC. You can attend RHC meetings to find out what is going on in your area. The RHCs implement programming to foster a better sense of community in the residence halls and increase overall development of a community atmosphere. Get involved and you could help out with organizing fun activities. Ask your RA or HC how to get involved!
University Residence Hall Association (URHA) The University Residence Hall Association (URHA) is a student organization committed to improving the quality of residence life for on-campus students. URHA performs a variety of functions to serve the best interests of our residents. URHA's voting body is comprised of 16 Senators, representing each hall on campus. These senators also serve as Residence Hall Council (RHC) officers in their individual halls. URHA also implements programming to provide a strong sense of belonging to the residence halls. Get involved and you could help out with organizing fun activities and passing important legislation in your living environment!
Judicial Board The DHFS Residence Hall Student Judicial Board provides residence hall students a means to have disciplinary cases reviewed in a peer level environment. The Judicial Board conducts itself as a formal process for the Division of Housing and Food Service and for the University. Judicial Board members review alleged policy violations by their peers and determine if the student is responsible for the violation. If the Judicial Board finds the student responsible, they also determine what kinds of sanctions are appropriate. Call for new members to the Judicial Board happens every summer.
Residence Hall Program Team RHPT is a group of student leaders who assist in coordinating large and small scale events specifically designed for the residence halls. RHPT puts on events throughout the year that include comedians, live bands, cultural events and much more.
