Become a Resident Assistant

What is a Resident Assistant?

Have you ever thought about being part of a team that likes to BUILD? Being a Resident Assistant (RA) is a great opportunity to building Community, building leadership skills, and building a stronger UL.

The Office of Residential Life and the Office of University Housing team is dedicated to building lasting communities of learning. Resident Assistants, commonly known as RAs, have the largest impact on achieving this goal through their interactions in our residence halls. RAs are responsible for getting to know the people in their communities, providing them with support, promoting a safe and comfortable living environment for all students, planning activities to help students grow and connect, directing them to resources that will improve their success, and otherwise enhancing the experience of living on campus.
