The Resident Directors (RDs) are full-time, live in administrative professional staff at Western Connecticut State University. They oversee students living in the halls, as well as activities and facilities. RDs provide advisement, counseling, and supervision for individuals, roommates, and other student groups. RDs work with the student staff of the building – Resident Assistants (RAs), Academic Resource Mentors (ARMs) and Information Desk staff – to create an environment that supports students academically, socially, and culturally.
Resident Directors also serve in a variety of roles in the operation of the department, specifically in terms of the selection and training of RA and ARM staff, room assignments, and occupancy. RDs serve an on-call rotation so that a professional staff member is always available, even when offices are closed. Your resident director usually has office hours from 10 am – 4 pm, Monday – Friday. Each has an office in his or her building where the bulk of these hours are spent, although they may from time to time be in meetings elsewhere on campus.
Listed below is contact information for each building’s RD and RA/ARM staff.
