The Residence Life Program strives to provide a safe and supportive environment for all students to thrive in academically, socially and personally. Residence Life at Humber is structured around five main objectives that have been established to ensure that high standards of community living and student achievement are consistently maintained in the Residence environment - Academic Success, Community Development, Personal Growth, Student Leadership & Empowerment and Diversity.
The Manager of Residence Life
The Manager of Residence Life is responsible for overseeing the Residence Life Program. A Manager of Residence Life is located at both the North and Lakeshore campuses.
The Residence Life Coordinators
The Residence Life Coordinators (RLC) are full time live-in staff responsible for the Residence Life Program. The primary role of an RLC is to uphold high standards of community living by providing educational and social programming, conduct management and guiding students throughout their residence experience. The RLCs are also responsible for the training and supervision of the Resident Assistants (RAs).
Resident Assistants (RA) are trained student leaders who are responsible for a floor within the residence. RAs provide a supportive mentor-like role within their communities while working to ensure residents feel safe and secure in their new homes. A fundamental component of the RA role is to support residents and ensure they enjoy their residence experience.
The vibrant, energetic and engaged community within residence is created and maintained by the RA team. RAs build residence spirit by providing various events and activities throughout the year, providing campus resources to residents and offering tailored programming based on the needs of each individual community. RAs participate in an on-call rotation for emergencies, and work to uphold the Residence Community Standards at all times.
There are a total of 30 RAs at North Residence and 10 at Lakeshore Residence. Your RA will be on hand during move-in weekend to welcome you and answer any questions you may have.
Interested in becoming an RA?
Once you settle into your first year in residence, you might want to consider applying for a Resident Assistant position for the following year. Every January, the RA application process for the following academic year begins. Interested residents should prepare their resumes and watch for job posting notices around the buildings. For more information, or to apply, talk to the RA on your floor or contact your Residence Life Coordinator (RLC). Remuneration is approximately equivalent to Residence Fees and Dining Plan for an Academic Year, depending on the selection of type of Room and Dining Plan option.
