Residence Assistants are an essential part of on-campus living. They are usually 2nd or 3rd year students who have applied and been chosen to live and work in residence. Their job is to foster a safe and positive environment for everyone who chooses to make their home with us. RAs are picked for their people skills and are trained to deal with all manner of issues that might come up in residence.
Our RAs are there to help you with life as a first-year student and/or living away from home for the first time. RAs plan activities throughout the year, that range from small-scale floor gatherings to larger-scale, residence-wide events. These activities are a way to create a sense of community. They also give you with an opportunity to meet new people, get involved, learn about on-campus resources, and to get to know Montreal a little better.
RAs are available to mentor you through the everyday life issues that you'll encounter as a first-year student. They'll help make sure your residence experience is the very best it can be.
