The LSU Residence Hall Association (RHA) is responsible for major programming throughout the year.

Help support these programs by purchasing an activity card at move-in day. With your community activity card, you enjoy exclusive access to a variety of items at your hall’s front desk like games, cleaning supplies, pool sticks or ping pong paddles for games in your hall, cooking items, and more. It’s just $10 per semester, can go straight on your fee bill, and supplements your hall Community Council’s budget for programs and other student-driven improvements to the hall.
