Office Assistants


Office Assistants are students selected on the basis of leadership, scholarship, life experience, and the desire to be part of an extraordinary customer service team for residence hall students. By working to maintain the smooth and efficient running of the hall office, Office Assistants play an integral role in the development of a safe and supportive community in their residence hall. Office Assistants are part of the UT-Arlington Apartment & Residence Life Department and are recognized as University staff members; they are therefore expected to act with professionalism and respect in all circumstances. Especially during times when they are not working, Office Assistants are responsible for acting as role models for residents by using their own best judgment, maturity, and concern for those individuals in their community.

Office Assistants (OAs) are typically residents of the buildings in which they are employed. They assist in the day to day operation of the residence hall office. OAs are responsible for referring students to campus resources, checking out equipment, completing general administrative office duties, providing tours of the residence hall, and assisting the residence director(s) as needed.

The office assistants report to the Residence Director.
