Advocacy in Housing

RHA works to respond to concerns that students may have while living in CSUN Student housing. Our Park Council Directors engage with the communities they represent to voice concerns coming from other housing residents. RHA also has a platform for submitting anonymous or non-anonymous suggestions for housing leadership. To submit feedback, please visit the RHA Resident Feedback form at http://tinyurl.com/csunrhafeedback. Once this feedback is received, your Park Council Directors and Executive Board members will develop plans to respond to student concerns.

What is the RHA Fee?

This one-time annual fee is charged to all CSUN Student Housing residents and it is established to partially fund the Residence Halls Association (RHA). RHA is essentially your student governing board in housing that promotes student advocacy and plans engaging events for residents to enjoy.

Your $15.00 goes a long way! Not only do we plan the largest-scale events in Student Housing, but we also work to respond to resident concerns within the residential experience.

If you have further questions about this fee, please contact Residence Halls Association (RHA) at rha@csun.edu or (818)677-4910

If you are looking to opt out of the RHA Fee, please fill out the inquiry form at http://tinyurl.com/csunrhafee. Once you have completed the form, please allow 2 business days to process your request.
