Residence Hall Association


The Residence Hall Association (RHA) at The University of Southern Mississippi welcomes you to the Southern Miss experience! RHA was established in 1982 through the Department of Housing and Residence Life and has a long-standing reputation of promoting student leadership and growth within the residence halls. Our organization consists of six executive board members and the RHA body, which is made up of elected representatives from each of the 15 on-campus residence halls.

RHA Committees

  • Community Outreach
  • Conference Spirit Committee
  • Resident Involvement
  • Special Events

Our mission is to provide effective programming services for on-campus students, as well as evaluate the needs and opinions of residence hall students on a daily basis. Last but not least, as a Southern Miss student living on-campus, you are already a part of RHA!
