Personal Characteristics

A Position of Trust

In performing their duties, Residence Assistants are in the position to deal with extremely confidential information, including the academic status and health information of others.

Because University student housing is not a program orientated to minors, staff are not subject to a formal security check. Consequently, it is critical that we get to know you on a personal and social level prior to engaging in a formal interview process.

Residence Assistant

A Residence Assistant is a supportive and approachable peer and leader for the residents of their section and facility. They liaise between their residents, their facility’s Vice-President, the ORS Council, and Housing Services.

With a co-RA, they develop, foster, manage and protect their inclusive community through social and educational events, programming, opportunities, and everyday interactions. They ensure their residents have the opportunity to:

  • Be active and contributing members

  • Be healthy in mind and body
