The Association of Residence Hall Students (ARHS) is the primary representative voice for the University Park residence hall community. The organization works to ensure that the experience for on-campus students is exceptional. Our goal is to guarantee that every student finds a real, true home here at Penn State. ARHS works with the offices of Housing, Food Services, and Residence Life to make sure that all parts of residence life are working to meet students’ needs. From recommending changes to the cable TV offerings, to conducting dining hall satisfaction surveys, to hosting diversity and sexual education programs, ARHS works to ensure that students’ needs are met and that their voices are heard while they live on campus.

There are tons of events put on by ARHS and all of the areas on campus. These events are free sources of entertainment, food, and fun that bring the on-campus community together. We have something for everyone, and these are a great way to meet new friends and connect with other students!
