Resident Assistants (RA)
RA Applications are now open for the 2023-24 school year!
If you are a resident assistant, you live in one of the Edmonds College residence halls (Rainier Place or Triton Court). You are responsible for creating and maintaining a sense of community among residents while maintaining rotating on-call schedules with other RAs in your building. Other duties may include sitting at a front desk during evening hours, helping residents with equipment for the community room, addressing student concerns, or enforcing policies. In return, RAs receive free housing in their assigned residence hall, have a great opportunity to develop student leadership and other professional skills, and participate in fun social activities and events.
