Residence Assistants

Resident assistants (RAs) are student leaders who have experienced residence hall or apartment living for a minimum of two semesters. Students living in a residence hall or apartment community are provided a specific RA in their living area who is there to assist them.

RAs are responsible for promoting an academic environment, referring students to campus resources, developing community among residents, enforcing university and housing policies, completing administrative tasks to include checking residents in and out of their residence hall room, and providing social and educational programming to their residents.

The resident assistants report to the residence director.
