Please join in the university effort to conserve energy by participating in your hall’s recycling program and by using energy wisely. Turning off lights throughout the building and keeping air conditioning thermostats at a reasonable level can help us protect the environment and lower energy costs.

Housing Leadership Opportunities
University Housing is committed to leadership development within the halls and on the ASU campus. In conjunction with many other ASU leadership programs and departments, we are committed to the development of student leaders by providing, promoting and supporting leadership opportunities.
The following are opportunities for leadership development within the residence hall community. Check with your hall staff for information on getting involved with these or other campus programs and organizations. In most instances, these are paid positions.
Residential Review Board (RRB)
The Residential Review Board (RRB) is a body of students assigned to adjudicate potential community violations which occur in the residence halls. These violations are those that do not violate the Student Code of Conduct but do violate Housing Policy.
The RRB serves as a peer review system for students who have been documented for an alleged University Housing policy violation. The main focus of the RRB is to enhance students understanding of their rights and responsibilities as members of a community, ensure residential communities allow for positive student engagement, and that communities are conducive to living and learning.
The Residence Hall Association, and Hall Council
The Residence Hall Association (RHA) at Arizona State University works within Housing and university communities to encourage awareness of the residential student perspective in personnel selection, programming, fiscal decision-making, long-range planning, and short-term problem solving. In order to effectively accomplish all of its goals, RHA maintains a close working relationship with University Housing and, the Associated Students of Arizona State University (ASASU). RHA is comprised of a board of directors and individual hall councils. Together they act as a student government for the residence halls and provide a wide range of programs, services, and leadership opportunities including the following: Welcome Week, Homecoming activities, and Community Service Events.
RHA receives its financial support from a $20 per resident per semester activity fee, which is included in the housing payment. The majority of this activity fee is allocated to residents in the form of services and programs at the Hall Council level. The organization is an active member of the National Association of College and University Residence Halls (NACURH) and the Inter-Mountain Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls (IACURH).
