Residence Life Staff


Experienced professional and administrative staff oversee the residence life program at Holy Names University. They are assisted by resident assistants (RA’s) - upper-class students who are exceptional student leaders. RA's live in the residence halls with their classmates, attend to various day-to-day activities in the living areas, and facilitate educational activities. Several RA's are involved with learning communities and are extremely knowledgeable about what it takes to succeed in college and at HNU. Get to know the resident assistants, they are here to support you! Want to learn how to become a Resident Assistant? Click Here!
