    Resident Assistants and Residence Hall Directors

    Each hall has several Resident Assistants (RAs) available to provide assistance to you, run hall events and make sure that the building is safe.  

    RA’s are current Adelphi students who have shown remarkable leadership abilities and a willingness to help their peers. Each floor in every residence hall has at least one RA living on it.

    Every night, there is an RA on duty in each building. They can be located in the RA office located on the first floor from 6:00 p.m.–11:00 p.m. during the semester or they be found conducting rounds within the building. After 11:00 p.m., you can call the designated RA phone number for your specific residence hall.

    Resident students who are interested in becoming RAs can learn about the application process.

    The Residence Hall Director (RHD) is a full time live-in professional staff member. Each residence hall has one RHD and it is their responsibility to ensure the needs of the building and its residents are met. The RHD’s office is located on the first floor of each residence hall.
