Your Resident Assistant is one of the most important people you will interact with at UIS.
Your R.A. is a student who resides in your court or residence hall wing. The R.A.’s are selected because of their leadership potential, interpersonal skills, positive attitudes, and sense of responsibility and fairness. Your R.A.'s are experienced residents and students.
The R.A.’s basic role is to provide leadership and support to you and your neighbors and to monitor and implement the policies and procedures of student housing. If you get to know your R.A. you will learn how to utilize his or her knowledge and skills.
The R.A.'s are the primary people you can contact with a problem or concern. You may call your R.A. to assist you with noise complaints, lockouts, dealing with roommate conflicts, and to hear your programming ideas.
In addition to having an R.A. assigned to your area, you also have access to an “on-duty” R.A. An R.A. is on duty every night to assist you when your R.A. is not available. On weekdays R.A.’s start their duty shifts at 5:00pm and are available until 8:00am the next morning. On weekends, an R.A. on duty is available 24 hours.
You may call the Housing Commons at 206-6190 or the campus police at 206-6690 to reach the R.A. on duty.
Maybe you have what it takes to become an R.A. at Illinois Spingfield,.
