Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University

Meet Your RAs

Choosing to live on-campus is choosing to take part in community living at Thomas Jefferson University. One of the main components to building the community on-campus is the Resident Assistant (RA) staff. The Resident Assistant staff is made up of upperclassmen students who want to make your on-campus experience the best it can be! The RAs build community by planning and holding programming events throughout the year in the residence halls or around campus.

The 2017-2018 Residence Life Staff

In addition to programming, the Resident Assistants are there to help answer questions, provide assistance or address any issues that may arise in the residence halls. There is always a member of the Resident Assistant staff on-duty, 24 hours a day / 7 days a week, in case of an emergency.

Below you will find a list of the student staff members who you will meet upon arrival.
