Residential Life Student Staff
Resident Assistants at the University of New Orleans
Your Resident Assistant (RA) will be one of the first people you meet upon arrival to your floor. RAs are students just like you who work to create a better living and learning environment in your hall by providing programming, building community, and being available to you. As a current student, your RA is a great resource for you, full of helpful tips and friendly advice. The RA’s also monitor maintenance requests and hall security protocols. Each hall is also staffed with an Area Coordinator who is a professional staff member who supervises the RA’s and the building, also serving as another resource for you. Resident Assistants and Area Coordinators work together with the Director of Residential Life.
