Director of Residence Life

The Director of Residence Life is supervises the Residence Life staff and overall operation of Residence Life including programming and crisis intervention.

Coordinators and Resident Directors

Our Coordinators and Resident Directors are professional, live-in staff members who supervise their residential area and its resident assistants. They also focus on programming and building community with students and maintaining a safe and healthy living environment for the residents. Coordinators and RDs conduct personal and judicial meetings with the students whenever necessary. There is a resident director on duty seven days a week, beginning at 5 pm during the weekdays, and all day on the weekends.

Resident Assistants

Each floor has an upperclassman student called a Resident Assistant (RA) who is your lifeline for everything related to living on campus (and beyond!). This student will be your mentor on living away from home for the first time. Whether you have a maintenance request, need help resolving a conflict with your roommate, or just want someone to talk to, your RA is like a cool, older sibling, ready to guide you and help however they can.
