Agency History:

The Office of Residence Living is a branch of the Office of Student Affairs especially directed to administer programs dealing with University residence halls. It employs Head Residents and Resident Assistants who live in the residence halls and provide students with their most immediate source of information about University policy in regards to living arrangements. In conjunction with the Residence Hall Association, Residence Living seeks to ensure that the student's college living experience will be enjoyable and meaningful in terms of both social and academic life.
