Resident Assistants

Be an RA!

Being a resident assistant can be one of the most influential and meaningful leadership opportunities available to students at the University of Oregon.

Resident assistants (RAs) are part-time live-in student leaders in the residence halls. As a resident assistant, you have the opportunity to act as a cultural navigator of students’ experience, assist students with academics, help students develop relationships across campus, and most importantly, assist students in having a positive experience living and learning in our communities.

RAs work a maximum average of 20 hours per week—work that can be demanding at times. While resident assistants help facilitate and develop our residential communities, they are also called upon to assist in ensuring that our residence halls provide a safe and secure environment for all our residents.
