Residence Advisors

What is a Residence Advisor?

Residence Advisor group shot
A Residence Advisor (RA's) are full-time students or alumni employed by the IZUNA Housing Office who live in the residence and provides support to the 333 residents who call Maquinna Residence home. The RA team helps to create a positive academic residence environment and acts as the front line of the residence management team.

Residence Advisors are many things. They are rule and policy enforcers, resource people, counselors, role models, activity coordinators, building managers and, most importantly, friends!

They are approachable, resourceful and very good listeners. When in need, they are your "go to" person. When you move into Maquinna, they'll be one of the first people you'll meet.

Why do we have Residence Advisors?

RA's enable a positive residence community for you to live in. While being responsible for the enforcement of residence rules and policies is part of their job, they are also great listeners, organize fun recreational activities and keep everyone involved in campus life. They are a resource to ensure that your experience at Maquinna is a happy one.

When are they available?

RA's live in residence and are generally in and around residence Monday to Thursday evenings. On the weeknights and weekends there is an RA duty schedule which ensures the residence always has an RA on site, but also ensures each RA gets time off.
