Resident Assistants (RAs)

Resident Assistants (RAs) work for Residence Services and team up with the Executive team to develop events and programs in HUB.  Each RA is also designated to a particular zone in HUB as a resource to the residents of that zone.  RAs take turns being "on-call" for after-hours issues and emergencies.

For information about HUB or UofA programs and services, or to get involved in the community, please feel free to contact your zone RA.  If you are experiencing an urgent issue (eg. lockout, noise complaint, maintenance issue, personal emergency, etc.) please contact the RA On-Call at 780-619-6244 instead of trying to get ahold of your specific zone RA.
