Resident Advisors

Resident Advisors (RA) are student leaders who live with their fellow students in the residence halls who are responsible for the management and assistance of residents within a specific section or floor.

RAs serve as the initial contact person for the students on issues such as: roommate conflicts, maintenance concerns, general questions about the campus, and issues that may arise within a Residence Hall community. They implement social and educational programs within the halls, build a community, and assist with enforcing the College’s Code of Conduct.

RAs are a great resource, as they were starting their journey at D’Youville – just like you are — not too long ago!
