Housing and Residence Life is hiring Resident Assistants (RAs) for the 2023-2024 academic year!

We are excited to share exciting updates to the position and compensation packages. RAs are integral members of the UNC Asheville campus who establish and sustain strong, healthy, and safe communities for all residential students. RAs take on an active role in facilitating and creating an environment of belonging conducive to student growth and success both inside and outside of the classroom. To be an RA is to be a campus leader who supports fellow students. The RA program is designed to develop strong leaders and lifelong community builders who affect positive change.

Students can learn more and apply to be an RA by completing the application here between January 9th and February 10th, 2023!
