Residence Staff

Residence Life ManagersTogether with the floor fellows, they provide invaluable guidance and oversee academic and social aspects of life in the residence halls.

The role of the Residence Life Manager is to create and sustain a sense of community in their hall, supervise the hall’s team of Floor Fellows, serve as a general resource person for students and staff in the residence hall, support and interact with the hall councils, and act as a Disciplinary Officer of the University when required.

RLMs oversee a grouping of halls or a single large hall and will live in or near the halls for which they are responsible.

As professionals with experience in the fields of residence life, student affairs and other learning/helping professions, they are responsible for educational programming, training and developing student staff (Floor Fellows), serve as a support and resource for resident students as they adjust to University life, provide administrative and operational support, serve as an early alert system for emotional, academic and mental health issues among students, and provide crisis management.

RLMs play a key role in enhancing student life in residences and often form deep and long-lasting bonds with their staff of Floor Fellows, with their hall councils, and with resident students.
