The Office of Residence Life commits to fostering a healthy environment for your intellectual, social and personal growth.
Our Area/Resident Directors are full-time, masters-level professionals who live in the area they oversee. They’re responsible for the daily operations in the residence halls.
They supervise our student Resident Assistant (RA) staff, oversee student discipline cases, provide mediation and support services, and oversee social and educational programs offered in the residence halls. They also serve as University officials in case of after-hours emergencies in the residential areas.
Please see the red section headlined MOVE-IN SCHEDULE / APPOINTMENTS on this page.

Students who are away from their room and discover they need to isolate or quarantine will be able to make ONE TRIP back to their room to grab their “go bag.”
