    Living on campus gives me the opportunity to network easily and gives me easy access to the Universitys resources. ~Bianka Anguiano, Business, Sophomore

    ACHIEVE ACADEMIC SUCCESS.Research indicates that students who live on campus are more satised with their college experience, earn higher grades and are more likely to graduate than their commuting peers.

    SAVE TIME AND MONEY.You dont have to waste time buying gas, ghting trafc or hunting for a parking space before class.

    When I can wake up ten minutes before class and still get there on time, thats freedom. Thats living on campus! ~Ryan Johnson, Public Relations, Sophomore

    CONVENIENCE.You are just a short walk from your classes, campus activities, sporting events and student services such as advising, health services and dining areas.

    YOU DONT HAVE TO COOK!While kitchens are available, the dining halls offer affordable meal plans and

    exciting menu options. Campus living also provides easy access to national franchises such as Starbucks, Chick-l-A, Taco Bell, Subway, Pizza Hut, Smoothie King and McAlisters Deli.

    I have met so many different kinds of people here and it really is a great way to make new friends. I love living on campus and hope you will too. ~Allison Langlinais, English, Junior

    ITS A BLAST!Dont just study. Join student organizations and attend athletic events, concerts, conferences and special lectures. Experience everything the campus has to offer.

    MAKE NEW FRIENDS.Its much easier to get acquainted with your peers when you are living down the hall from them and participating in activities that take place right where you live.

  • The Residence Hall Association (RHA) plays an important part in the residential experience. Every student living in the UH residence halls is a member of RHA and may participate in the programs organized by RHA. RHA meetings are held biweekly and are composed of representatives from each hall or living area. Representa-tives address current issues, review policies, and sponsor programs to enrich the living environment for the residence hall community. RHA consists of an executive board elected the preceding year by the residential population, as well as individual hall representatives. RHA is an exceptional opportunity for students to get involved and give back to their community through leadership opportunities and programs.

    First Year Residential Experience (FYRE)The FYRE program is designed to reach all rst-year students living in the residence halls. The program aims to ease students transition to campus life through meaningful opportunities to interact with campus partners, faculty and peers. Students will take part in programs and services specically designed for rst-year students, including academic, cultural and social events, as well as sessions on student success, nancial aid, career advising, etc.

    Residential Theme HousingSimilar to living-learning communities, theme communities are where residents who live in the same residential community are connected to each other by similar backgrounds or interests. Any student in any major or academic program can participate in a theme community. Examples include, but are not limited to, Sustainability, Second Year Experience, Wellness, etc. For more information, visit us at http://housing.uh.edu/about/living-learning-communities.

    Living-Learning CommunitiesLiving-learning communities (LLCs) are intentionally developed collaborations with Academic Affairs where residents who live together on a residence hall oor also participate in a curricular component directly connected to an academic program or department. For example, students living together may also take one or more courses related to their major. LLCs may include, but are not limited to, Business, Engineering, Hotel Restaurant Management, Honors, etc.
