There are many people and departments that you will meet while you are living in residence. All of us are here to make your experience a good one. Our goal is to provide clean, comfortable and educational communities for all types of students who consider academic success, diversity, community involvement and personal well-being essential to university life.
The Residence Operations team (also referred to as Housing) work hard to ensure that your overall residence experience, from move-in and maintenance to questions and check-out, is positive - in essence, they are the landlord. For information or service pertaining to your agreement/lease, the facilities, lockouts, lost keys, cleaning, policies or the physical environment in general, please contact any Operations staff member in our Residence Services Offices.
Resident Assistants (RAs)
The Resident Assistants (RAs) work for Residence Services and reside in the community. They are specially trained to provide quality services to the student community from assisting students in need to organizing opportunities for involvement. They are also on-call for emergency purposes when the Residence Services Office is closed. Please contact any RA for information about how to get involved, how to access on-campus resources, how to deal with conflicts, for after hours emergencies, or simply to talk. Your RA on-call number is available on the Current Residents page for your residence.
