Residence Hall Association

The USD Residence Hall Association (RHA) is a student organization that aims to improve campus life for residents. In order to enhance and promote a positive living environment on campus, we plan a combination of social, cultural, and educational programs, as well as community service opportunities. In addition to planning free events for students, RHA serves as an active voice for residents, assessing and reporting the needs and concerns of students living on campus.

Each living area has an individual hall council that plans events (Camino/Founders, Maher, Missions A, Missions B, San Buenaventura/SAPs/UTAs/PTAs, Vistas, and Manchester). All councils are advised by a Community Director and/or RHA Executive Board Member.

Getting involved in RHA is a great way to meet other students, plan great events, become a student leader, as well as serve to improve the USD community. For more information please e-mail
