Residence Hall Association

The Canisius College Residence Hall Association (RHA) - the "King of Clubs" provides students with a wide variety of programs and services. RHA also acts as an advocate on behalf of resident students regarding housing issues, suggestions, or complaints. 

RHA has a free rental office with movies and board games.

The RHA Rental Office is a free service provided to Canisius students.  We rent the latest DVD's, complete TV Series and even classic VHS movies. We also provide DVD players, vaccuum cleaners, cleaning supplies, and board games for students to borrow. Check out the inventory.

All items must be returned to the Rental Office 2 days after being checked out. Unreturned items will be charged directly to your Canisius bill.
