Housing and Residence Life Staff

The Housing and Residence Life staff works together to provide an outstanding on-campus experience for you!

In collaboration with one another under the guidance of the Senior Director, the Associate Directors of Housing and Residence Life direct the day to day activities of Housing and Residence Life Office in two distinct areas: Operations and Residence Life. This includes oversight of the contract process, assignments and the overall condition of our residence halls, as well as engaging students in the residence halls, creating an inclusive residential environment and providing a safe home away from home.

The Residence Life staff is comprised mostly of Student Staff (LCAs and RAs) and Residence Life Coordinators (RLCs), who live with the residents in the halls. They are responsible for creating programs for their floor/community, counseling residents through roommate conflicts and policy enforcement.

Student Staff

Resident Assistants

Some of the responsibilities of the RA include: working with students, provide programs for their students, actively develop the residential community and enforce policies. RAs have in-community duty responsibilities, office hours in the area, and work on Housing and Residence Life committees.
