Resident Assistant Selection

If you love Binghamton University and Residential Life, the RA Selection Committee invites you to apply to become a Resident Assistant!

Resident Assistants possess strong leadership skills and a commitment to build quality relationships in not only their residential community, but all across the Binghamton University campus.

RAs play an integral part in the overall operation of the residence halls. Primarily, the RA is concerned with the growth and development of each individual on his/her floor and the building community as a whole. Additionally, RAs are continually striving to enhance the quality of life for those residents. This includes planning programs, promoting diversity, assisting with personal and professional growth, and most importantly enjoying their time at Binghamton University. It's a fun and rewarding job with many benefits.

RA Job Description

Responsibilities of a Resident Assistant will vary in each area based on the differing needs of each community. RAs are expected to demonstrate professionalism, commitment to the goals and values of Binghamton University, initiative, dependability, and a positive attitude.
