The Residential Life Office works to provide a safe and supportive living environment, encourage growth and learning, foster authentic relationships, and create remarkable experiences for all residential students at Trinity University.
If you are an energetic, upbeat, and caring individual interested in a great leadership opportunity, you should apply to be a Resident Assistant (RA). RAs are selected for their ability to facilitate a sense of community within the residence halls. RAs are expected to uphold the residence hall policies and procedures as well as to serve as a resource to all residents. RAs aid in meeting the mission of the department, and the quality of their effort directly affects the quality of life of members of the University community.
Please contact Rachel Boaz Toppel (rboaz [at] trinity.edu), Assistant Director for Residential Education, directly with any questions.
If you are currently studying abroad (spring 2020), the Residential Life Office will contact you about applying for a position. The application requirements are still the same; however, study abroad candidates are to sign up for a 30-minute individual interview via Skype or Google Chat between February 21-22.
If you are planning to go abroad in the fall or spring semesters of the 2020-2021 academic school year, you may still go through the selection process. Please indicate on the common application which semester you intend to study abroad.
If you have any questions about the selection process, please contact Rachel Boaz Toppel at rboaz [at] trinity.edu.
