Residence Life Association (RLA)

OU’s Residence Life Association (RLA) is an organization of students living in the residence halls and apartments who provide a voice for residents, and promote community among the various complexes. RLA assists community councils in developing better living communities and creating programs and events where students can interact in a diverse setting on campus.

The Residence Life Association is designed to be an educational experience for those who participate. For students engaged in planning and coordinating Residence Life Association activities, the experience is intended to foster and develop the qualities of leadership, management and cooperation, which when carried out in accordance with the goals of Oakland University, place the activity in the realm of co-curricular activities.
