RHA is an on-campus organization which strives to provide residents with the UCF experience through programming and leadership opportunities. This organization sponsors events on campus, provides support for bettering the residence hall living experience, and holds meetings with Area Councils, which lead over each community.
NRHH is an honorary organization composed of student leaders living in on-campus housing and in its affiliates. Our mission revolves around our two main pillars, service and recognition. We participate in community service events throughout the Orlando community and on UCF’s campus to recognize individuals for their impact. NRHH members have the opportunity to serve their local community, gain experience to become better leaders, and make friendships with other students who share the same passion for altruism. We would love for you to check out our Knight Connect page to learn more!
Housing and Residence Life hosts campus and community-wide LINK programs throughout the year. LINK (Learning and Interacting with New Knights) is a program developed by Student Development and Enrollment Services. It’s a program designed to get first-time-in-college new Knights out of their rooms to experience and interact with the UCF community.
The main focus of LINK is to get new Knights out having fun, meeting people, and getting connected to UCF. Through LINK, new Knights will be exposed to experiences that will enhance their success and satisfaction at UCF. LINK programs range from academic-focused programs about study skills and time management to social interactive programs.

The National Association of College and University Residence Halls (NACURH) seeks to create a network of civically engaged students and provide them with the skills and resources needed to create a positive impact within their residence halls. The University of Central Florida has had the opportunity to bring delegations to several in-person and virtual conferences affiliated with NACURH. At these regional and national conferences, Residence Hall Associations and National Residence Hall Honoraries hundreds of delegations from different institutions will discuss their student leadership experiences, exercise their voting rights during boardroom, and learn from educational sessions that are presented.
Each year, institutions affiliated with NACURH are able to apply to host the annual conference at their own institution. As of December 1st, UCF is officially bidding to host the NACURH 2023 Annual Conference! The conference leadership bid team for UCF is now recruiting student leaders within the residence halls to apply for open conference staff positions.
Currently, there are 15 open positions on this team that will play a vital role in successfully hosting the annual conference. This is an incredible leadership opportunity where students will gain experience working with a large team to successfully plan and execute components such as entertainment, dining, ceremonies, and more for annual conference delegates!
Selected candidates will be interviewed during the second and third weeks of classes for the Spring Semester, before selecting final candidates for the positions. All interested students should know that this will be a commitment from Spring of 2022 until June of 2023.
