Residence - The Smart Choice

Residence Life Staff

 The University of Windsor wants to ensure that all residence students have the best experience possible. To ensure that the standards and purposes of residence life are met, the university employs Residence Life Coordinators and Resident Assistants who work in the residence community.


Residence Life Coordinators (RLCs) 
Residence Life Coordinators are full time, professional university employees living in residence. Their primary focus is to improve the quality of residence life by providing an environment which supports the academic, personal and social development of the students. Some of their responsibilities include educational programming, counselling, discipline, supervision of student staff and the day-to-day operation of the residence buildings. Each Residence Life Coordinator looks after a community of residence buildings.

Community Assistants (CAs)
The CA’s are returning members of the Residence Life staff who have demonstrated a unique ability to lead and get involved. Their main responsibilities are the hiring and supervision of residence desk staff as well as student programming opportunities including the REAL programs.

Resident Assistants (RAs)
Resident Assistants are students that live on every floor of first year residences. These upper-year students are responsible for programming, peer counselling and ensuring that students are aware of the Residence Understandings and Agreements ( These are the general rules of the building which all resident students are given when they move in). Part of their job is to make sure that students respect quiet hours and everyone’s right to a positive residence experience. They receive extensive training in all areas and are there to support students academically, socially and provide a safe and secure living environment in our residences.

Resident Assistant Academic (RA-Academic)
The RA-Academics fulfill similar roles as the floor RAs. However, their main purpose is to assist the students in their residence to the academic transition to University life by providing academic advice and support.
