Mason's Resident Student Association works to make your life better while bringing the fun.

We're an advocate for student needs, and push for changes for the better in residence and dining halls. We address problems, concerns and questions you might have, and we represent the collective interests of on-campus resident students. We also provide social and educational events by organizing building and neighborhood activities.

We're open to all residents on campus, and welcome everyone who wants to get involved and have an impact on life at Mason. Want to join in? RSA General Body Meetings are Wednesdays at 5 p.m. in Piedmont Hall.

  • Reviewing and making suggestions in regard to Mason Housing policies and procedures.
  • Promoting a sense of community among the residence halls of each neighborhood.
