Our Team

Resident Advisors (RA)

The role of the Residence Advisor is filled by returning students who live in the building and plan educational and social activities in Residence. The RAs provide valuable support and guidance to students, while at the same time acting as a liaison with Residence management. The RAs complete nightly rounds of the building and are available through the Front Desk. The RAs have the tools and knowledge to get you the answers, direction and/or assistance you need, or can simply be someone to talk to.

Community Advisor (CA)

Our Community Advisor is a paid para-professional staff member who helps support the Resident Advisors and Residents’ Council. Working under the leadership of the Residence Life Coordinators, the Community Advisor helps facilitate and enhance our programs and events as well as empowering our RAs and RC to foster a community we all want to be a part of.

Residents’ Council (RC)

As a representative body of the Residence student population, the Residents’ Council aims to enhance the Residence experience and foster academic success by practicing high quality student leadership through programming, volunteerism and student support initiatives. The Residents’ Council creates opportunities for Residence students to participate in leadership initiatives, learn valuable new skills and add value to the Residence experience. Students may volunteer on committees, attend meetings or simply participate at Council events. The Residents’ Council Executive positions are elected by the students in Residence. All residents are welcome to apply to be a member of the welcome crew, committee chairs and members at large. All Residents’ Council positions are volunteer positions.
