Resident Assistants

Resident Assistants (RAs) are student leaders employed by the Office of Residence Life. RAs live in each residence hall and apartment building. RAs are there to help provide a fun, educational and cooperative living environment where everyone can take ownership. The primary role of a RA is to help you develop community on your floor/wing, but they also are trained in peer guidance, leadership development, crisis intervention and establishing community standards (policy enforcement). RAs are hired because of their leadership skills and personal commitment to helping you succeed. In short, the RA is the “go to” person for any question or concern you might have.

Resident Assistants are on-duty Sunday - Wednesday 9:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. and Thursday - Saturday 9:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. During these times you can reach RA staff at the following duty numbers. To reach RA staff outside of duty hours a list of RA rooms and phone numbers is available on the Resident Assistant page. For any urgent or immediate concerns please contact the Community Center Front Desk at 920-465-2040.
