Resident Life Staff

Resident Life Staff are available to assist residents with a variety of needs. Community Assistants serve as a main resource for the residents; they operate the building's 24-hour service desk. The desk is the central location for which students pick up mail, obtain extra keys, and make other customer service related requests.

Two Resident Assistants live on each floor, along with one full time Resident Director who also lives in the building and oversees the entire staff. The Resident Staff is responsible for managing the residence halls, as well as creating a social, cultural, and academic environment through various programs.
