GOALS FOR HOUSING & RESIDENCE LIFE

South Plains College Residence Life strives to promote a student’s personal and academic successes by curating opportunities for skill development towards ethically and culturally minded members of the South Plains, Levelland, Texas and global communities.  Housing and Residence Life staff consistently seek to provide a welcoming and comfortable campus environment. Highly trained staff and quality education and social programs enhance student experiences, personal and academic growth. South Plains College housing and hall staff strive to:

  • Create an exciting campus community that engages residents.
  • Teach sensitivity to the rights and values of others.
  • Curate opportunities for students to connect with the instructional, local, and global communities on a societal level, learning skills to be part of a unit to create global change.
  • Encourage personal accountability of every resident for their own actions.
  • Support the academic goals of residents.
  • Support and maintain a community that embraces diversity and belonging.
  • Maintain a campus environment which provides the opportunity for individual growth and development.

RESIDENCE HALL ASSOCIATION (RHA)

Living on-campus at SPC is an integral part of the college experience. It is one of the best ways to become connected to our college community. As a governing body, the Residence Hall Association (RHA) is the OFFICIAL voice of on-campus residents, serving as the liaison between residents and the administration. We inspire growth, leadership, and involvement through our development of residence and campus life.

RHA is responsible for additional residence life programming, leadership development, fundraising, community service, and student advocacy within the residence halls. RHA exists to support students’ leadership skills and hear student concerns and what they would like to do for programming. RHA strives to provide a space of engagement and community for students that live on campus.

All residents are members and all are welcome in any meeting at any time!
