Each residence hall has a live-in staff of Resident Advisors (RAs) and Resident Directors (RDs) who are there to help you succeed. Our staff is carefully selected and trained to help you adjust to being on campus and being a student at UK. They plan activities, support academic achievement, help students become involved, enforce policies and other measures to make sure our halls are safe and much, much more.
Resident Advisors are students who live and work on a floor or wing in the residence halls. RAs share your concern about classes, grades, and campus life. They help residents get acquainted, answer questions, distribute information, assist students with problems, and help uphold policies. RAs are trained to provide information to students or refer them to those on campus who can best assist them. Take some time to get to know your RA, they can be a great resource for you. If, after living in the halls for at least a semester, you are interested in applying to be an RA, apply online at http://www.uky.edu/hr/employment/.

Each hall has a Resident Director who is responsible for the overall management of the building. The RD supervises the RAs and Office Assistants, advises the Hall Government, and serves as a resource person for residents. If you ever want to get more involved in the hall, have a problem you need help with, want a room change, or have any questions, your Resident Director is a great person to seek out.
