Residence Life

Resident Student Association 


The Resident Student Association (RSA) is a premier residential student organization that works to help students “love where they live” and advocates for the betterment of student life on campus.  RSA is an org  anization created and solely run by students just like you that works to enrich the on-campus experience by offering leadership opportunities, sponsoring diverse programs, building a sense of community on a growing campus, and ultimately, empowering residents by providing them with a voice.

Survival Bingo, Cram Jam, Student Care Packages and Campus Improvements are just a few examples of RSA yearly traditions and initiatives, and each neighborhood on campus has a specific neighborhood association that is connected to RSA led by students, staff and faculty.


As you consider your future involvement at Elon, we hope that you also consider getting involved with RSA or your neighborhood association, as both are meaningful ways to connect with other students within a leadership role and environment.

How to Get More Involved

Join your Neighborhood Association

Elon’s campus has residential neighborhoods within each neighborhood: Colonnades, Danieley, Historic, Global, Oaks, Station at Mill Point and the Loy Center. Each Neighborhood has its own Neighborhood Association, led by faculty, staff and students (neighborhood ambassadors). These neighborhood ambassadors act as liaisons between the students of their neighborhood and RSA and lead the programming and learning within that specific neighborhood. Each Neighborhood Association has their own programs and traditions, and works to make improvements within their specific neighborhood.

Join RSA

If you live on campus, then RSA is an organization you are already a part of! Come to our meetings and get involved with us on campus, we meet every week at 4:30pm on Tuesdays. There are always ways to get involved with RSA, including committees that work on planning an event, helping out with campus relations, and creatively publicizing RSA! We are a happy bunch, and we love to see new faces at our meetings. You can also stop by our office, located on the first floor of Moseley.

Purchasing Linens, Hutches or Care Packages

RSA assists students to purchase a number of items to help you customize your room including linens, hutches and care packages. For more information on how best to order these items, please see the following Amenities Webpage.
