Resident Assistants at the University of New Orleans
An Resident Assistant (RA) is 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 RAs also monitor maintenance requests and hall security protocols. Each hall is also staffed with an Area Coordinator and an Assistant Hall Director who are professional staff members and supervises the RA’s, the building, are also another resource for you.
