Getting Involved with Student Opportunities
The Department of Residence Life offers many great opportunities to get involved within the halls and to have a say in the operations of the buildings. The links below are provided to assist you on your journey to getting involved in the residence halls and campus community.
Each hall provides a governing body made up of residents who work with the staff to provide programs and activities, recommend policies and inform residents about hall and campus happenings. Leadership positions include wing representative, president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, and Residence Hall Association representative.

Residence Hall Association
The Residence Hall Association (RHA) is the student governance group that has primary responsibility for the formulation and review of policies concerning student life, services and interests in the residence halls. They are responsible for promoting an interest and understanding among residents regarding their campus environment and serve as a general forum for improving residence hall life.

National Residence Hall Honorary
Students who are involved in the halls spend vast amounts of time getting other students involved, planning activities, participating in events, and contributing to the overall community atmosphere. Very often these students are never thanked or recognized for their time and efforts. This is the founding principle behind the National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH).
The purpose of NRHH is to provide recognition for those individuals living in the residence halls who provided outstanding service and important leadership in the advancement of the Department of Residence Life. It offers members an opportunity to continue to use their skills and qualities in developing other student leaders at UW-Platteville. Membership is limited to the top 1% of the total UW-Platteville residence hall population, and is determined by a nomination, application, and selection process.
