Meet your Resident Assistants (RAs)

A Resident Assistant, or RA, is a student who lives and works as a peer to residents in our residence halls. They are your main resource for getting started at UW Tacoma. Their responsibilities include:

  • Getting to know you and your interests
  • Encourage residents to become involved on the floor, in the hall, and around campus
  • Promote an academically supportive environment
  • Connect you to campus resources
  • Assist you in getting to know other residents
  • Encourage residents to respect the rights of others and to approach one another with concerns
  • Confront behaviors that may be in violation of university or housing policies
  • Assist residents with roommate agreements and help mediate conflict if necessary
  • Conduct floor meetings with residents to discuss floor items and provide information about hall happenings
