The Residence Life Office is dedicated to the happiness and well being
of all students in residence. Because of this we have staff members who work
and live in residence as supports for other students. These staff members are
broken into three groups, Residents Assistants, an Academic Resident Assistant,
and Dons. These positions are described below.
Every floor is represented by a Resident Assistant (or RA).
The RA is your source of information and support. RA’s are extensively trained
to ensure a smooth residence experience. A Resident Assistant is on duty in
every building from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. week nights and weekends. A schedule
of this duty is posted on your Resident Assistant’s door.
Academic & Community Resident
The Academic & Community Resident Assistant (ACRA) is a student
dedicated to supporting the academic and community success of students in residence. The ARCA
can support students one-on-one, in group programming or through other
residence based initiatives. Some areas where the ARCA can support students are,
study skills, time management skills, interpersonal skills or practical community skills (laundry, cooking, etc.). Please
contact the ACRA at msvu.ca.
Every residence at The Mount is supported by a Don who in
turn supervises the areas RA’s. The Dons are experienced Residence Life Staff
who are available in case of emergencies or serious problems. All Dons are also
available to support any students who are in need.
