Residence Life Staff

What is the Office of Residence Life?

Residence Life provides social and educational activities, oversees housing placement and operations, and coordinates other residential functions for students who live on campus. The office is located on the Lower Level of the SUB (Student Union Building), near the Post Office. Our live-in staff includes both professional and student staff. Staff members live in every residential building on campus.

  • Although we work closely with their staff, custodial and maintenance functions in the residential buildings are manged by the Facilities Services office.

What are Resident Assistants (RAs)?

The RAs (including the Community Resident Assistants, CRAs) are the backbone of our residence life program. Each of these student leaders is hired after a selective screening process and receives training on mediation, activity planning, policy enforcement, handling emergencies, and other important topics. These staff are responsible for upholding community standards, mentoring students, and helping to build a sense of community in each residential area.
