Residence Life is comprised of a diverse group of staff members who work to create an engaging and educational living environment. Our staff represents a plethora of campus groups and interests and has the knowledge to successfully guide students through a fulfilling Florida Tech experience.
During the course of the Academic year, students are encouraged to meet and connect with the Residence Life Staff and take advantage of the knowledge, experience and enthusiasm that they provide.
RAs are undergraduate students who undergo a variety of comprehensive training workshops to prepare themselves to be a resource and facilitator for our residence hall communities. There is an RA on every floor or within every building and they are the best immediate resource for the residential student.
RDs are graduate-assistants who are responsible for the supervision of one or more residence halls in each respective area. An RD may directly supervise anywhere from 6 - 12 RAs. Many of our RDs previously served as RAs during their undergraduate years, so they have a wealth of knowledge and experience to impart to the students.
The Community Director is either an undergraduate or graduate student with experience as an RA, but who holds an intermediary position between the RA and RDs. The CD is an extra resource for our students and the student staff. Many of our CDs go on to become RDs during the course of their Florida Tech Careers.
