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.
Hall Involvement Teams
The purpose of each Hall Involvement Team is in place to engage and connect residents in a hall with their community on a variety of levels. First and foremost, these teams are tasked with the challenge of promoting an environment in which each resident takes responsibility and pride in their role in the community.
Secondarily, the Hall Involvement Teams are designed to promote leadership (both through displayed actions and invisible guiding) in the building. Through advocating for both themselves and their floor mates, it is hoped that all residents involved in these teams will further develop their skillsets to influence and guide in the future. Finally, this team is designed to encourage all residents to take ownership of their Pioneer experience through bringing concerns forward, planning for the future, and engaging in civil discussion regarding their experiences.

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.
