Orientation & support
Residence is more than a place to eat and sleep – it’s home!
Residence at Concordia is lively and welcoming, filled with students from around the world.
Students often find that their social circle begins in their room and expands outward. From roommates, to friends on other floors, to colleagues across campus and in classes, you never know where your Residence Life experience will lead you!
Resident assistants (RAs) and Residence Life staff will help you navigate your new environment.Residence Life Handbook
Resident Assistants (RAs)
RAs are a fundamental part of the residence experience. They are 2nd or 3rd year students who have been selected to live and work within residence, with the goal to foster a safe environment and ensure a positive experience for first year students. The RAs are selected for their people skills and are trained to deal with issues that might arise in residence.
The RAs are here to help guide you through being a first year student and living away from home for the first time. They develop events and activities regularly throughout the year that range from small scale floor events to larger scale residence-wide events. These activities are in place to create a sense of community and provide you with an opportunity to meet new people, get involved, learn about the resources on campus, and to get to know Montreal.
The RAs are also here to ensure each resident feels comfortable. They are available to mentor residents through everyday life of being a first year student. You will build a relationship with the RAs on your floor, and within your building. They are around to help make your experience the best it can be!
