The Residence Hall Association (RHA) is a student-run organization that exists to improve the quality of life of Loyola students by offering programs based on students' interests, as well as promoting a safe, supportive, and welcoming community. Its members are elected by the greater student body with representation from all six of Loyola's residential areas with representations from across all four class years. 

RHA at Loyola University Maryland is a creative and dynamic part of Student Life that supports residents by addressing the questions and concerns that resident students may have and representing the collective interests of Loyola’s resident students to the administration and the community at large. In conjunction with these functions RHA provides social and educational events for individual residence halls and the university as a whole, including the Winter Formal, Siblings Weekend, and Wing Bowl. RHA's goals include fostering a strong residential community, providing leadership opportunities for residents, and advocating for the rights and well-being of on campus students.

If you would like to become a part of RHA or learn more about it, please contact us at rha@loyola.edu.


Wing Bowl

Are you ready for some football? Every year RHA hosts the annual Wing Bowl, featuring a broadcast of a Baltimore Ravens game and a competitive wing eating contest. Students can register to be in a wing eating competition and have the chance to win a Loyola Themed Tailgate refrigerator. This free event offers a wide range of food and games throughout the evening.

Annual RHA Wing Bowl

RHA is nationally affiliated with the National Association of College and University Residence Halls (NACURH) and the Central Atlantic Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls (CAACURH), which provides its leaders with opportunities to attend conferences and programs to further develop their leadership skills and give fellow students the power to impact their own community.

If you or a student organization on campus need help funding an event or activity please fill out the RHA Fund Request Form and send it to us as indicated in the form. Our Executive Board will review your request and determine whether to help fund whatever you need!
