Residence Life and Housing
Support Residence Life and Housing on #MaryWashDay!

Living on campus is an integral part of the UMW student experience. Walk around on commencement day following the ceremony and one will find countless graduating seniors gathering in front of their residence halls to take a picture.  Residence Life and Housing provides a living-learning environment that combines safety, convenience, and access to campus resources and challenges students to think about their responsibility to self, the community, and the world. Multiple opportunities exist for students to engage with their academics, leadership, and service.


The backbone of our program is the Resident Assistant staff. These undergraduate student leaders spend countless hours building positive communities, mediating conflict, implementing programs with a curricular approach, and responding to student crises. Simply put, RAs are the heart and soul of Residence Life! They take simple encounters like a quick hallway chat at one in the morning or an impromptu viewing of a popular TV show, and foster feelings of belongingness and friendship that last well beyond the college years. These RAs spend a good portion of their time together, becoming fast friends and even calling each other “family.”



As Residence Life and Housing has evolved, so has the RA programming model. RAs fulfill specific goals and objectives set forth in the Residential Curriculum, such as Eagle Chats, guided bulletin boards, educational and social programming, and more. The tenets of the Curriculum are woven throughout everything the department does.  Gifts received will be used to further the Residence Life and Housing mission by funding additional training, development, and appreciation opportunities for our Resident Assistants. In addition, we will utilize gifts to refresh our residence hall community spaces with new furnishings, amenities, and décor in an effort to make UMW Home for all current and future students.
