Living in residence and on campus is not only convenient, but allows students to build connections, learn outside the classroom, and develop a strong campus connection. 

Residence Advisors

Residence Advisors (RA) at Graduate House assist in building community within the residence and providing residents with support and referrals in the event of academic and personal problems. They function as mediators in the event of conflicts between suitemates, program initiatives geared towards graduate students, and help ensure the safety and security of the building. Each RA is assigned a specialization that they focus on when programming and supporting students. The RAs work in close collaboration with other members of the residence life staff and the Graduate House administration to promote a community conducive both to study and to collegial interaction.
