Resident Assistants

Resident Assistants (RAs) are trained undergraduate student staff who live on-campus to assist students with acclimating to the university environment, building a positive community and navigating interpersonal concerns. RAs promote the development of a safe, supportive and inclusive residential community. They assist with roommate mediation, crisis response and policy enforcement. The RA should be a resident's first contact for situations such as:

  • roommate conflicts
  • getting involved in the residential community
  • identifying campus resources
  • lock outs when the Savitz Hall office is closed

RAs live in every community across campus. Residents can reach their RA at the RAs room; or, while there is a RA on Duty every night from 8:00pm - 7:30am (next day); the RA on Duty can be reached by calling the RA on Duty phone for the residential building/area, which is posted at each hall/area office.
