Resident Assistant Staff

What is a Resident Assistant?

A Resident Assistant is a student employed by Residence Life who oversees a floor of residents in a residence hall or apartment building. Your Resident Assistant will act as your campus resource and liaison for Residence Life, whether you are an incoming first-year student, a transfer student, or a returning Western student.

Resident Assistants will hold floor meetings at various times throughout the year, including the beginning and end of each semester and before Thanksgiving Break, Winter Break, and Spring Break. Floor meetings tend to cover information that residents need to know (i.e. where do I park my car over Winter Break?).
