Who are we?
The University of British Columbia Residence Hall Association (RHA) is an organization of elected students that represent all residents living on campus. We are committed to building community and enriching the residence experience through programming andÂ advocating on the behalf of its residents.
The UBC RHA is the largest RHA in Canada, and by 2019, UBC will haveÂ more on-campus housingÂ than any university in the country, meaning our RHA will continue to grow in terms of members.Â These membersÂ have a strong interest in leadership and take on active, committed roles within the residence community. The UBC RHA hasÂ nine area residence councilsÂ which are each dedicated to the growth and student life in that specific community.
Some of our main areas of focus include student rentersâ€™ rights, accessibility to campus resources from within residence, community building, the â€śultimate first-year experienceâ€ť, supporting students in personal and academic pursuits, fostering leadership, and more!
