Residence Team

Students with Residence Life Information Sign

Meet your Residence Team. We are here to support you and to ensure you have a positive residence experience. Stop us in the hallway to say hello. Drop by if you have a question.

Residence assistants

Think of residence assistants (RAs) as the people with all of the answers. They can let you know about residence events and activities, services on campus—even where to sign out those ping-pong paddles you’ve been wondering about. RAs organize and host social gatherings, connect you to your fellow residents and offer a listening ear if you need one. Your RA is friendly, helpful and looking forward to meeting you.

Front desk staff and team leads

Front desk staff help keep residence safe and secure, tend to residents’ needs and fulfill administrative duties like sorting and distributing mail, answering general inquiries, contacting Residence Life staff members as needed, receiving maintenance requests and signing out items, such as pool balls, remotes, irons and vacuums. The Front Desk is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week by full-time staff members and part-time student staff.
