Residential Life

Residential Life Staff

Apply to be part of the Residential Life Team!

The Office of Residential Life employs 88 community advisors across our residence halls. The Community Advisor (CA) represents the Department of Residential Life as a key staff member in its operations. The CA serves on a team under the direct supervision of a Senior Community Advisor & Area Coordinator. Together, these staff members work with students to create and maintain an atmosphere that fosters a welcoming, inclusive and friendly community. The CA performs diverse responsibilities; acting as a role model, peer counselor, event planner, resource person, administrator, and crisis responder.  The New Community Advisor Application is now live in Residence. If you have questions about being an CA please feel free to e-mail

Room Freeze Periods

We implement a room freeze for the first two weeks and last two weeks of each semester.  We do not process room changes during the room freeze periods but once the freeze is lifted, students should see their Area Coordinator to discuss their options.

Common Space Reservations

Looking to host an event or gathering in your residence hall common room?  You can reserve space using our Common Space Reservation process.  These used to be called Small Private Events (SPEs) and the process and rules remain the same although the name has changed.
