The Residence Hall Association (RHA) is an organization devoted to Duquesne's resident students. Students who get involved with the RHA executive board and hall councils help to make exciting student trips, weekend programs and events possible.

Every fall semester the RHA sponsors Sibling's Weekend (cancelled for fall 2020 due to COVID-19), which is held in conjunction with the Office of Freshmen Development's Family Weekend. Registration and more information about Sibling's Weekend 2019 is available now.

In addition to Sibling's Weekend, RHA also sponsors and takes part in the following events:

  • Shopping trips to outlets
  • Haunted Hayride/walking trail with campfire (3 buses sell out quickly)
  • Phipps Botanical Gardens
  • Free donut giveaways
  • Fall Fest
  • Labor Day Scavenger Hunt
  • Ice Skating
  • Ski outing to local resort
  • Bingo series
  • Zoom Olympics
  • and many more!
  • Plus each Hall Council has numerous programs each semester
