What are Residence Associations?
Residence Associations represent and provide services to all students living in their residence. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Representing the students to Residence Services, the Students’ Union, and the Graduate Students’ Association;
- Coordinating social events; and,
- Providing services as needed.
Each Residence Association is unique in its innate understanding of the issues and concerns that affect the students in that Residence. They are an important part of the campus community, both socially and politically.
