Resident Advisors


Resident Advisors (RAs) Resident Advisors serve as a vital peer-to-peer connection between students, support systems, communities, and the university. Whether having coffee with residents trying to settle on a major or trying to find their place at GW or leading programs and initiatives that support residents' interests, RAs each find unique ways to add value to their residents' experiences. The advice, guidance, care, and mentorship RAs provide to other students are what make the RA leadership role among the most impactful.

RAs also serve on an on-call rotation within their teams. The purpose of RAs serving on call is to provide peer support, accountability, and pro-social behaviors in the residence halls, and empower student leadership in the maintenance of respectful and safe residential communities. RAs serve on call nightly to assist with any emergencies that may arise. RAs who are on call also complete two community rounds during their shift

The deadline to apply to be an an RA for the 2020-2021 period was at noon on Dec. 2nd and is now closed.
