How do I become a Resident Adviser (RA)?
We are always looking for student leaders to be resources and role models for our residents. You can click on the Work for Us menu to get more information about the position and application process. Our main recruitment process is typically during fall semester for the upcoming academic year, but there are times when we need to fill open positions during the current semester. In addition, we have other student positions you can apply for and those too are listed on the Work for Us page.
Do I need renter’s insurance?
The University does not carry insurance that will cover losses of your personal belongings you might incur from fire, theft, water or other casualty. We encourage you to consider a personal property insurance plan or renter’s insurance if you are not sufficiently covered under another insurance policy.
