Residence Life Advisors

Each residence hall has a staff of sophomore through senior students who serve as residence life advisors (RLAs).  There is at least one RLA per floor in each of the seven main residence halls.  As peer leaders, the RLAs plan activities for their floor and hall to help students become engaged and involved with their hall and the Lawrence community.  RLAs serve as a resource for campus offices, services, policies and procedures to hall residents.  The RLA staff for a hall is supervised by the Residence Hall Director (RHD) for that building.

Residence Life Managers

Each formal group or theme house has a student leader that serves as the residence life manager (RLM) for that facility.  The RLM helps guide social activities in the house and serve as a resource on campus offices, services, policies and procedures to house residents.  The RLM serves as a liaison to a variety of offices and services on campus and works closely with the Campus Life Office staff.
