RESIDENT ASSISTANTS                                                                                                                                               A Resident Assistant (RA) is a well-rounded student staff member responsible for building a positive community by organizing creative social and educational activities, fostering a safe environment, and establishing 1-on-1 relationships with residents.  RAs promote student development by serving as a resource for academic support, housing policies and procedures, and by encouraging involvement in the diverse campus community at USCB. 

There is an RA who is on-call 24/7 for the residential areas.

CUSTODIAL/ MAINTENANCE STAFF
Custodians and groundskeepers maintain the community room, breezeways, and exteriors of the residence halls. However, Custodial staff will not dispose of personal trash and they are not responsible for maintaining the cleanliness of each apartment.

Residents may complete a maintenance form in the Housing Office during normal business hours or online. Maintenance staff will respond in the order of receipt and as quickly as possible to all requests.
