Resident Assistants

Resident Assistants are current Otis College students who are trained and serve as a resource for residential students. They spend time learning about our campus and the best ways to support our community. The Resident Assistants help enforce policy while engaging with students. 

We hire Resident Assistants each spring for the following academic year. Learn more about how to apply for this position and other student leadership positions here
