As a Buff, you are part of the CU family. Take the time to strengthen and expand those ties by becoming more involved around campus! Whether you want to take on a student leadership role as part of a hall council or Residence Hall Association (RHA), are looking for on-campus employment or want to make new friends in a competitive intramural sports league, CU Boulder has a lot to offer. Let’s take a closer look at how you can become more involved in life on campus!

Residence Hall Association (RHA)

The University of Colorado Resident Hall Association is the student-run residence hall governing body that oversees all of the individual hall councils. The RHA focuses on creating initiatives that improve the lives of those living on campus. If you are interesting in becoming a part of the RHA, be sure to visit the RHA site

Hall Council & Senate

Hall councils are student governments for each respective residence hall. Hall council members work to improve the residence hall experience through tradition, identity, advocacy, programming and community development. Students participating in hall council also work on improving their own leadership skills through retreats and leadership conferences. Additionally, hall councils have a board of senators that meet with senators from other residence halls to vote on campus-wide legislative issues. To learn more about participating, visit the RHA website’s hall council section.
