The Residence Hall Staff includes the Director of Housing, Resident Director, Resident Assistants (RAs), Desk Assistants, Security Guards, and Maintenance. Each of these positions plays an integral part in helping residents living at the College.
Director of Housing
The Director of Housing oversees the overall operations of Housing Services. The Director processes all Housing Applications, assigns rooms for each semester, facilitates room changes and cancellations, applies all relevant charges and maintains past and present contracts, and facilitates long and short-range goals of the Housing Office to improve campus life for the residents. The Director, along with other Housing Staff, coordinates efforts with other College divisions to create a safe, educational living environment.
The Resident Director strives to develop an atmosphere conducive to the academic and personal growth and development of residents; to provide efficient management of the facility; to provide personal assistance to residents in a variety of ways, and to maintain a living environment that attends to the needs of the residents.
RA Applications open in March
Resident Assistants, or “RAs,” are full-time students who live with the residents and assist the Housing Office in managing facilities, coordinating activities and programs, communicating with residents, and policy reinforcement. They direct their efforts toward building a community atmosphere.
RA applications are accepted in the spring semester for the upcoming academic year. We are continually looking for candidates who have an interest in making positive and lasting contributions to Residential Life at Coastal Alabama.
RAs gain valuable leadership experience and develop interpersonal and communication skills that serve them well in whatever careers they choose. Compensation includes room and meals, personal growth and development through helping people achieve a richer collegiate experience, and building memories that last a lifetime.
Desk Assistants are work-study students who assist in signing in guests during visitation hours and office duties as assigned by the Resident Director. They are appointed to the position through the Financial Aid Office.
Security Guards are located in the lobby of each hall. They monitor all halls and common areas and work with other Housing Staff to ensure the safety of residents and guests.
Each Hall has a Maintenance Staff who provides general custodial functions and will process all maintenance requests and work orders.
