Residence Hall Staff
Student Housing utilizes a large, diverse staff to facilitate the daily operations for the residence halls, including an assortment of both student and professional staff.
Student staff operates various residence hall programs, while live-in student staff oversees the residence halls, advise students and act as first-line intermediaries when challenges arise.
Resident Advisors (RAs) are undergraduate students who live in the residence halls alongside their residents. RAs oversee their respective building community, engaging residents in various activities, one-on-one and group contact, and advising. They also create and facilitate community-building programs and host events which may include movie nights and game nights. RAs were once first-year students too, making them an excellent resource.
For more information, and for on-call phone numbers, refer to the Resident Advisor page.
Senior Resident Advisors
Senior Resident Advisors (SRAs) are undergraduate students who live in the residence hall communities. SRAs oversee RAs and offer leadership and advice to residents and RAs alike. Like RAs, SRAs were once first-year students and therefore are an excellent resource for information, advice and insight.
Area Service Desk, Computer Centers, and Academic Advising Centers Staff
Student Housing employs students from the community to staff various positions throughout the various residence hall programs. By employing students, Student Housing makes available to its residents a variety of people who live in and are knowledgeable about the residence halls and can share their wide range of interests and experiences, while providing opportunities for employment for its residents.
Professional staff manages the student staff, and offers additional support including academic and leadership advising, and guidance regarding policies and conflict resolution. Student Housing also employs a large professional maintenance and custodial staff who oversees all buildings and grounds, facilitates repairs and upgrades, and provides cleaning services.
Office Coordinators oversee the daily operations for the residence halls, including the Area Service Desk.
Academic Coordinators oversee the Academic Advising Center, create and facilitate programs to advocate academic growth and support, and offer one-on-one advising with regard to classes, coursework, and planning. Together with the other coordinators, they oversee the student staff, including RAs and SRAs.
Leadership Coordinators plan and facilitate programming in the residence halls which nurture healthy communities according to UC Davis’ The Principles of Community, including education and support for diversity, freedom of expression, and individuality, and which rejects discrimination and hatred. Together with the other coordinators, they oversee the student staff, including RAs and SRAs.
Conduct Coordinators create programs, offer advising, and meet one-on-one with residents to offer guidance regarding residence hall policies. They help residents navigate the various challenges residents face when integrating into a large, diverse community, intervening in challenging situations, and assisting with conflict resolution in the community.
