Resident Assistants

Resident Assistants [PDF] Our RA's are undergraduate students specially trained in all aspects of residence hall living, with the experience and knowledge to assist residents. They are responsible for maintaining a floor environment that is conducive to studying and promote a sense of community among residents. The RA acts as an advisor to floor members and is available to discuss academic, social, and personal concerns.

Who’s on Duty?

The residence halls have an RA staff member "On Duty" every night. This individual is available for any problems or emergencies that may arise. Students may contact the RA on duty by calling the appropriate Front Desk (located below). RAs are on duty 5 p.m. - 8 a.m. every day.
