Hall Governance

The purpose of hall governance is to create connections and provide opportunities for the student voice.

Each hall is governed by a legislative body (community council) consisting of executive officers, floors representatives and all residents of the hall. They all meet on a regular basis and serve a variety of functions, including setting a budget for the hall funds, purchasing equipment for the hall, determining rules and guidelines governing common areas both for residents and for outside groups requesting to use residence hall space, discussing and offering solutions to problems occurring within the halls, and planning and implementing hall events.

Additional opportunities for involvement include participation in Community Council, the Residence Hall Association (RHA), and the National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH).
