Job Opportunity

Resident Assistant positions are available through the Department of Residence Life & Housing. Resident Assistants are student staff members who live in and lead the residential communities of our campus. The RA experience provides many opportunities to observe and correct undesirable behaviour, to orient students to University life, to aid in their emotional and academic adjustment, to develop certain social skills, to be available to residents and encourage student responsibility and accountability. Resident assistants are an integral part of the out-of-class learning experience. It’s not just a Job, it’s an Adventure!!!!!!

The Department of Residence Life will be accepting RA applications until October 31st at 3PM.
