Resident Assistant (RA) & Community Manager (CM)

Be the Best You as an RA or CM

Join the team!


Resident Assistants (RAs) and Community Managers (CMs) significantly impact and influence student success at the University of South Florida – Tampa. Via the residential curriculum, RAs and CMs implement various initiatives that facilitate student learning. They are peer educators who make our communities the best place to live, learn, and work.

CMs support students in Greek Village and must be a member of the chapter they serve. RAs support students in our more traditional residential communities. The responsibilities, roles, and expectations of RAs and CMs are very similar.
