One of the main advantages of living in a residence hall is the variety of support that is available to help you have a successful transition to college.
Community Directors (CDs) & Student Resident Assistants (RAs)
In each residence hall we have a professional Community Director who manages the hall with the help of our RAs. RAs are students assigned to every floor and/or wing of a hall that are hired and extensively trained to support the transition to college life. They can answer questions, offer resources, oversee policy or can just be there to listen.
Academics is the reason you at the UA and we want to make sure you succeed by offering a variety of tools, videos and assistance.
Student Assistance Team
The Residence Life Student Assistance Team is a program supported by Residence Life, the Dean of Students Office and Campus Health to help students manage crises, life traumas and other barriers that may impede their success at the UA. Here are more details.
Social Justice & Diversity
Residence Life has a clear and strong commitment to diversity, multiculturalism, and social justice. We believe that cross-cultural and intercultural experiences enrich our halls, and are central to the residential experience. We strive to provide our staff and students with quality programming and training designed to help us support a mission of equity and equality for all. Here is more information.
