Q: Can I stay in the halls over breaks?

A: For breaks during the semester such as fall or spring break, you are welcome to stay. However, the dining hall will have reduced hours. If you'd like to stay after the residence halls close for winter or summer break, you must make arrangements ahead of time with the Residence Life office and it will be at an additional cost. The dining hall will also not be open during these times. For the exact dates the halls will be open, click here.

Q: How do I apply to be an RA?

A: The Resident Assistant application process begins in February and consists of a paper application, a group interview, and an individual interview. If you are interested in becoming an RA, feel free to talk with your RA, RD, or the Director of Housing about the details of the position.

Q: How do I change to a different room or building?

A: Depending upon the situation and room availability, you may request a room change with your RD. If your room change request is the result of a roommate issue the first thing to do is talk to your RA. Let them know what is going on between you and your roommate. They will meet with you and your roommate, and use your roommate agreement to work to mediate the problem. If the RA’s intervention does not seem to help, the RD will schedule a meeting with all members of the room and determine how to proceed based on the information provided to them. We do ask that all students stay with their roommate for at least two weeks after a mediation, to allow time for the new boundaries to be exercised.
