The purpose of hall government is to create connections and provide opportunities for the student voice.
Each hall is governed by a legislative body (hall government) consisting of executive officers, floors representatives and all residents of the hall. They all meet on a regular basis and serve a variety of functions, including setting a budget for the hall funds, purchasing equipment for the hall, discussing and offering solutions to problems occurring within the halls, and planning and implementing hall events.
Hall governments meet on Wednesdays at 7pm, and are open to all students living in the halls.
