Student Staff You Will Meet

The staff at IIT strives to maintain an on campus environment that fosters both the academic and personal growth of its residents. There are many opportunities for involvement and leadership in the residence halls. By taking advantage of such opportunities, residents have a chance to grow through the development of new friendships, exploration of new ideas and involvement in new activities.

Your Resident Advisor (RA) is a student staff member who is trained to help acclimate you to community life and to assist you with your needs. They lead floor meetings and plan social and educational programming to help your community unite. There are forty-one Resident Advisors to serve as resources while you stay in the residence halls.

Your Community Desk Assistant (CDA) staff is comprised of over 100 student staff members. The team works to greet you when you return to the halls and keep the residence halls secure. CDA staff offer resident support by managing the front desks in each building.
