Housing & Residential Living

Residential Life Staff

The Residential Life staff consists of the Director, Associate Director, Area Directors, Resident Assistants (RAs), and House Managers.

Each floor or living area has one or two RAs. Small houses have a House Manager. These upperclass students help provide opportunities in the residence halls in areas such as interpersonal communication, organization and time management, conflict mediation, and leadership development. They also play a primary role in developing social and educational programs, and serve as peer advisors and campus resources. Additionally, they conduct inventories of rooms and public spaces. These student leaders are the first people you should contact with a concern about anything related to your residence hall.

A full-time professional area director is assigned to oversee each living unit. The area directors supervise and work closely with RAs and House Managers. Additionally, they help develop residential programs and activities and serve as resources to students. They coordinate room changes, facilitate roommate discussions, and collect and disseminate Residential Life information. They also participate in the Residential Life emergency on-call system and work with student crises. These professionals live in apartments within the residence halls.
