What is NRHH?

The National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) is the premiere honorary established by the National Association of College and University Residence Halls (NACURH). NRHH was established to advocate for the interests

and welfare of residence hall students, while also providing opportunities for their personal growth and development. The UNCC NRHH chapter strives to provide recognition for individuals who have contributed to the

advancement of housing at UNCC. The National Residence Hall Honorary is representative of the top 1% of student leaders in Campus Housing based on leadership, GPA and involvement in Residence Hall Communities.

NRHH is a Leadership based honorary comprised of exemplary residential students who value Service and Recognition

The NRHH Chapter here at UNCC focuses on ways for residential students to go out and serve their community both on and off-campus. We also strive to recognize residential students through the "Of The Month" (OTM) program. Each month, residents across campus can submit OTM nominations for deserving individuals, groups, or programs on campus in numerous categories.

NRHH Basics

NRHH colors are blue and white

Blue symbolizes loyalty: loyalty to purpose.

White signifies a blank page: a page on which a student writes the successes and experiences that fill their days in the residence halls.

The Symbol of NRHH

The symbol for NRHH is a diamond surrounding the letters of the organization, and the three interconnected links, the chain of leadership.

  • The diamond, the world's most precious gem, signifies the value and beauty one finds in their residence hall experience.
  • The first chain of the link represents caring. Leaders are people who are. They are concerned about themselves and others and are committed to making things better.
  • The second link signifies dedication. Part of the leader's commitment is the dedication to ideals and causes, which they display to others. Dedication is an important part of the involvement required to be a truly effective leader.
  • The third link represents participation. True leaders participate fully in their academic pursuits, friendships, activities, and lives. Leaders do not sit on the sidelines but are complete team players.

Together, the unbroken chain symbolizes the never-ending leadership of NACURH and membership to NRHH.
