One of RHA’s main activities is putting on community and campus-wide programs. Each community government is responsible for planning and implementing programs within their community and building. The RHA Internal Affairs Officer and the RHA Programming Committee is responsible for creating campus-wide programs throughout the year.

Community Cup Point Guidelines
This program is to act as a rewarding incentive to community governments. It is to encourage members’ hard work and dedication to service all year long. Such commitment will benefit themselves, residents, staff, and the community living environment at UNC. The Community Cup program is designed to strengthen community development, morale, and appreciation for the UNC residence halls.

RHA hosts a special week-long string of programs twice each year, once in the fall and once in the spring. Each RHA Week, many of the communities across campus offer programs daily, from social to service to educational events. T-shirts commemorating the week are also given out at the events.
Every year RHA, the National Residence Hall Honorary and the Department of Housing and Residential Education put on the Tunnel of Oppression.The Tunnel of Oppression is a tour that will engage students in an immersive experience of scenes where participants will experience firsthand different forms of oppression through interactive acting, viewing monologues, and multimedia.
Residential Green Games
Residential Green Games is an environmental competition that seeks to promote sustainable behavioral change and education in the sixteen campus housing communities. Green Games presents opportunities for students to learn about environmental issues by peer-to-peer education with the hopes that they will incorporate these values into their daily routines and beyond their time at UNC. It is organized by the office of Waste Reduction and Recycling. Each community is encouraged to select a Green Games Coordinator to represent their community and to learn more about green programming.
