Housing & Residential Life
The Residence Hall Association (RHA) Executive Board would like to welcome you to an
amazing year in your new home here at Florida International University.
One of the many important decisions you must make while at the university is where you
will live. By choosing to live in the residence halls, you have taken the first step in opening
new doors, for many exciting opportunities that come with your on-campus experience! We
encourage you to seek out and take advantage of every resource that is made available for
you. Attend a faculty program in housing or get extra tutoring help in the Lakeview South
Academic Resource Center (ARC). Academic, social and recreational programs take place
every day in the residence halls. The diversity of programs provides useful and insightful
information that is endless and as wide as you can envision. The skills, closeness, and lifetime
friendships that you develop as a result will ease your transition into the university and the FIU
residence hall community.
In addition, we would like to encourage you to take advantage of the other resources and
organizations that are offered at FIU. Join your hall council, help plan events with RHA,
frequent the on-campus comedy shows, attend an FIU athletic event, volunteer in the
local community, or play on your hall intramural team. No matter what your interests, the
opportunities are plentiful and all provide a worthwhile and unique experience.
The Residence Hall Association provides an array of programs, events, and most importantly,
a voice for you. RHA not only acts as the liaison for you within our housing community, but as
well as within the University community via the Student Government Association. Attend our
General Assembly meetings where representatives from each Hall Council meet to discuss
important issues related to on-campus living. These meetings are open to all residents. We
invite you to provide suggestions as to how we can make residential life a better experience
during your academic endeavors. For more information or if you have any questions, please
