Residence halls are staffed by trained and skilled personnel. Our team of full-time professional and student paraprofessional staff members are there 24 hours a day to offer support and guidance, oversee hall operations, respond to emergencies, help enforce ASU policies and procedures, and facilitate a sense of community distinct to each residence hall.
Carefully selected upperclassmen serve as resident assistants and student hall directors. These peer mentors offer advice, help students work out minor problems, help them meet people and get involved in activities and programs, and provide information about the many other campus services available to students.
In addition to the resident assistants and student hall directors, Housing & Residential Programs employs about 40 on-campus students to fill various other positions, including office assistants, maintenance assistants, summer conference staff, etc.
Full-time professional staff members live in and manage the day-to-day operations of the residence halls. These full-time university staff have specialized professional and academic training and experience. They are skilled in dealing with the wide range of experiences and issues common to college life.
