Residential Services hires students who have the potential to be successful in all communities. If you are selected for an RA position, we will consider your preferences when making hiring and placement decisions; however, we will place departmental needs before RA candidate preferences. Once you have submitted your application, you may not change your preferences. RA staff will learn their area, building, and room placement prior to the end of the academic year.
