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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

STAR Centers

STAR (Students Taking Academic Responsibility) Centers are academic resource centers for residents. The centers help create a positive, academically-orientated environment to help students achieve academic success.
