Resident Advisors

Resident Advisors (RAs) are representatives of the Housing Office that reside in university owned housing. Under the direction of an area coordinator, RAs are available to assist residents with roommate problems, maintenance requests, and questions regarding housing policies. The Resident Advisors work together to help implement the residence life program at Southern Virginia University. They serve as mentors and peer advisors to the residents and help them to assimilate to the challenging life of a knight. With maturity and kindness, they learn when to step in and help and when to step out and let the resident find his or her own way. They balance stretching and supporting of the resident in the process.

Area Coordinators

he Area Coordinators (ACs) are assigned to manage and administer Housing Policies under the direction of the Dean of Students. Each Area Coordinator is given responsibility for specific university-owned residential living units in a designated area, and they supervise RAs living in that area. They assist in management of university-owned housing, teach and support Housing Policies and work with the residents to create a positive living environment.
