Student Affairs & Services

Each of the three residences in our community (Loyola, Rice and Vanier) has a live-in, professional Residence Coordinator (RC). RCs must assist with the supervision of our student staff (RAs) and also serve as mentors, administrators, and community advisors. Residence Coordinators work with the RAs to identify student and community needs and then develop programs designed to the academic goals of the university and promote responsible behaviour among students (including intervention and follow-up with individuals experiencing behavioural/ disciplinary issues or other personal challenges). RCs also participate in an after-hours on-call system throughout the academic year.
