Live-in Staff

At SDSU, there are many professional and student live-in staff members available to assist and guide students living in the residential communities.

Community Assistants (CAs) are full-time SDSU students who have had intensive training on various issues that affect upper-class students (sophomores and above). CAs serve as facilitators for community building and are available to listen to your concerns and help you seek additional help when necessary. CAs are also responsible for bringing inappropriate conduct to a resident’s attention.

Community Interns (CIs) are the student staff members of the management office responsible for assisting you with customer service, leasing information, general property information, processing mail, work orders, maintenance concerns and enforcing expectations related to policies and procedures.

Desk Assistants/Security Monitors are the front desk student staff members responsible for assisting you with customer service, monitoring the security of the building, disseminating information and equipment and enforcing expectations related to safety procedures.

Front Desk Security Managers (FDSMs) are SDSU graduate student team members. Their responsibilities include assisting the RHC in overall community management and assuming primary responsibility for front desk operations.
General Adviser & Retention Specialists (GARS) work inside the residential communities and provide academic advising and retention programs for students living on-campus. 

Residence Hall Coordinators (RHCs) are full-time, master-level professionals who live in the residential communities. The RHCs work with building staff and residents to provide a link to all of the resources at the university and assist in the development of a positive residential community. Every RHC supervises a Front Desk Security Manager and the Resident Advisers/Community Assistants who live on every floor of the community. The RHCs also advise the Hall/Community Council, maintain community security, meet with students regarding student conduct issues and coordinate activities and programs.

Resident Advisers (RAs) are full-time SDSU students who have had intensive training on a variety of issues college-age students encounter on a daily basis. RAs live on each floor of the residential communities and are available to listen to your concerns and help you seek additional help when necessary. In addition, RAs serve as facilitators for community building and regularly plan programs.

Scholars-in-Residence serve as liaisons between SDSU faculty and students. These SDSU faculty members live in apartments located within the campus residential communities. They work closely and cooperatively with the residential staff. Together, they develop academic communities and meet the needs of residents by encouraging their intellectual stimulation and academic success.

  • All residents must utilize their SDSUcard to access the front doors and gates of their residential community.
  • First-year residents must present their SDSUcard and/or building identification to the front desk staff every time they enter their residential community. All residents must present their SDSUcard if asked by a university official.
  • Guest policies strictly enforced in the residential communities.
  • 24/7 front desk operations in first-year communities and some sophomore and upper division communities. Front desk hours in our apartment communities are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Resident Advisers and Community Assistants are on duty daily from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. for emergency needs and REO and OHA managers are on-call 24/7 to respond to emergencies.

  • All rooms, suites and apartments are subject to regular safety and maintenance inspections.
  • All first-floor rooms have university-provided window/door security screens for the security of residents.

Register through the Web Portal.
