Residence Life and Housing Staff

Residence Life StaffResident Assistants (RAs) are friendly, helpful students who live in the residence halls and who respect and care about the rights and dignity of all people, who challenge and support growth in themselves and others, and who strive to create a welcoming, positive living and learning environment for all residents. RAs are chosen because they have shown skill in time management, flexibility, patience, strong ability to communicate, a sense of humor and the enthusiasm for assisting others. They serve as information resources about the residence halls and campus life.

Resident Assistants are vital members of the Office of Student Affairs team serving our residents' needs. If you have any questions or concerns, ask your RA.

Take some time to get to know your RA.

Housing Staff

Deans are full time professional staff members who oversee a wide array of programs and services for the Office of Student Affairs and are here to assist you throughout your time at Pitzer College.

Faculty-in-Residence (FIR) are selected faculty who live in the residence halls with their families. The FIR program bridges the academic and Residence experiences in a seamless living/learning environment by integrating Pitzer faculty members into the Residence experience and facilitating their active participation in student learning. The FIR will sponsor a wide range of activities designed to enhance the intellectual, social, and civic development of students living on the Pitzer campus. The FIR helps plan and implement educational, recreational, artistic, social and cultural programs while serving as a role model, mentor, adviser, teacher, and leader in the Residence community.

Residence Directors (RDs) are full-time live-in professional staff members. They are responsible for the overall operation of residence halls and supervision of the RAs. RDs are available for individual and group counseling and mediation on personal, academic, and social issues. The RDs are visible and accessible, maintain strong campus presence, serve as advocates for students and work closely with students and staff to help establish a positive residential community. Be sure to get to know your RD.

Housing Coordinator is a full-time professional staff member who is responsible for assisting students with their housing needs. This person coordinates all housing assignments and processes room requests. If you have any housing related questions, be sure to visit the housing coordinator in the Gold Student Center.

Mentors are friendly, helpful students who work alongside the RAs to provide support for new students through their first year at Pitzer. Mentors live with the first year students and advise members of their mentor group about social activities at Pitzer and throughout the other five-colleges. They are directly involved and responsible for encouraging academic and social interaction.
