Resident Assistants

What's an RA?



Resident Assistants are student paraprofessional staff members in the Office of Student Living and College Engagement who live in and assist with the management of the residence halls. For their services, RAs receive credit toward their room fees and a stipend. RAs are usually upperclassmen who have previously lived in campus residence halls, and they receive extensive training in working with residential students. RAs are appointed for a one semester or one year term by the Executive Director of Student Living and College Engagement.

How can I be an RA?



RA selection is done once per semester.  This consists of an online application with a resume, group process and individual interviews.  Some students get selected for immediate hire, others will be part of an alternate list for hire at a later time.

You do not apply for this position through Student Employment.
