Residential Life Frequently Asked Questions:

What is a Resident Advisor? 

A Resident Advisor (RA) is a student that has experience living on campus at Lake Superior State. Each RA was chosen for their leadership qualities, and is placed in freshman or sophomore living area to be the first contact for residents having concerns or problems on campus or in the residence halls. The RA staff members are here to help younger students with the challenges of college and living with others in the residence halls. They have gone through extensive training and are knowledgeable about campus.  The RAs can help direct students to campus services and support.  RAs also promote events and programs in their residence halls designed to be fun and informative.  Lastly, the RAs are present to uphold community policy. Do not hesitate to see your RA if you have any questions regarding the residence halls or the university. 

What is a Community Advisor?

Similar to a Resident Advisor, a Community Advisor (CA) is a student staff member that resides in and is responsible for housing including the apartments, townhouses, or row houses.

What is an Area Coordinator?

Area Coordinators oversee the day-today operations and staff in all on campus living areas. The Coordinators are professional staff members of the university with extensive experience working in residence halls. They reside on campus in order to be available to residents at any time. Coordinators are present to help students with questions, comments, and concerns that arise.

How are the buildings staffed?

Each living area is supervised by one of the two Area Coordinators who are full-time employee trained specifically to work with college students in a residential setting. Resident and Community Advisors live throughout the buildings to provide close assistance to residential students. There are seven RAs in Osborn Hall, seven RAs in Brady Hall, four RAs in the Student Village, one CA in each apartment building, two CAs in the Townhouses and one CA in the Row Houses. Each living area staff also includes full-time and student custodial staff members.

What do I do if I'm locked out of my room?

If you lock yourself out of your room, contact an RA/CA from your floor or building. If you cannot find an RA please contact the Public Safety Department for assistance. If you’ve lost your key please report it to the Housing Office immediately for you safety.  

Where can students find a good place to study?

All the residence halls have established quiet and courtesy hours. These policies make the residence hall rooms a suitable place to study. Other places for studying include residence hall study lounges, the library, the learning center, and campus computer labs.

Can I have a bike on campus?

You are welcome to bring a bike to campus, but it must be kept outside in a bike rack. Be sure you have a good lock and chain to secure your bike.  You are encouraged to register your bike with Public Safety, in case of loss. During the winter months, bicycle racks are removed to allow for snowplowing. We recommend that bikes are taken home at Thanksgiving. Winter bicycle storage is available in Brady hall. Information about bicycle storage is made available to residents each October.
