RHA Center Reservation Request
The Residence Hall Association (RHA) Center can be reserved, free of charge, to any USM student who lives in the residence halls or to any Southern Miss faculty or staff. The RHA center can only be reserved during the Center's normal hours, Monday-Thursday 8:00AM-12:00AM and Friday 8:00AM-6:00PM. Early morning, late night, and weekend events cannot be approved.
The RHA executive board will not approve the reservation of the RHA Center for individuals to reserve the facility longer than two hours. The facility can be reserved for group meetings, class study groups, residence hall related group functions and approved student organizations that have more than six (6) individuals. Requests should be submitted at least 10 business days before the event. Allow seven business days for the executive board to review this request and communicate a decision.
It is the responsibility of the individual submitting the reservation request to ensure that the facility is left in its original state. Amplified sound is not permitted in the facility. Any action that is in violation of the Department of Residence Life or University policy, will be documented. The organization or individuals that are in violation of a policy will be not allowed to use the RHA Center in the future.
Additionally, moving furniture is strictly prohibited. The facility does not provide food for those who reserve this space or materials that may be stored in the space. If your reservation is reserved we require all members of your group to sign-in at the front desk, no exceptions. A USM student ID must be presented and left at the front desk while in the center.
