Living in University Housing gives you many opportunities to get involved and be a leader on campus! This is a great way to have fun and establish life long friendships while carrying a number of responsibilities in the residence halls. Hall Council, Residence Hall Association, National Residence Hall Honorary, and Student Affairs Prep Program are all great opportunities available to on-campus students.
As a resident you are automatically considered a voting member of your hall council. This gives you a voice on matters of hall policies, facility improvements, staffing, and hall programming. Being a member of a hall council can help residents build their resume, and more. Hall council meetings are held each week in your residence hall and all residents are urged to attend and participate.
The Residence Hall Association is the voice for on-campus students. Additionally, RHA makes recommendations upon the University Housing policies and acts as a liaison between the administration and residents for the betterment of the Residence Halls and Greek Court at EIU. Click here to learn more.
The National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) strives to recognize people who have a positive impact on residential life. They work to ensure this occurs through a myriad of avenues whether it is through formal recognition, such as OTMs or OTYs, or informal avenues. Click here to learn more.
