The Resident Student Association

“Making the Residence Halls a Home since 1972”


The Resident Student Association at the University of Delaware values an inclusive, engaging, diverse, and valuable residence hall experience. We are invested in providing opportunities and resources that empower resident students to lead communities to their full potential. Through programming, advocacy, and support of Community Councils, all resident students have the ability to make the residence halls a home.


What We Do


The RSA strives to provide plentiful, meaningful, and fun programs to the residents at the University of Delaware.

We oversee the Community Council system, which comprises of 15 Community Councils, with an Executive Board member serving as a mentor to one or more Council.

The RSA also offer monetary support through our Programming Finance Grant that students can fill out for funding of various events.

In addition to helping students living in Residence Halls, we also work with other Registered Student Organizations. We set aside money every year for Co-Sponsorships of events that have similar values to our organization!

The RSA is the advocating voice for students in Residence Halls. We aim to provide a meaningful experience to all residents and make sure that their voices are heard and action is taken.

Our Director of Advocacy oversees the RSA Advocacy Committee, which focuses on specific advocacy issues seen prevalently throughout our Resident Halls. Right now they are working on imporving access to Residence Halls and receiving feedback on what students want to see in their Dining Options.

We provide monetary support to ANY resident trying to advocate for their community through Student Advocacy Grants. Through this, we hope to better enable students to create change themselves in their own communities.
