Welcome to our Resident Assistant Program
New beginnings are always difficult! As an international student, it is not always easy to find one’s way in new surroundings, and support of any kind is welcomed. The international students in residence halls are supervised and supported by residence assistants.
The residence assistants are points of contact for international residents if they have concerns, problems, or questions. The work of the resident assistants contributes to the improvement of living conditions and integration of the international students. The resident assistants also organize cultural events to strengthen the sense of community and achieve successful integration.
The resident assistants are guided and supported by the staff of the International Student Center. An intercultural workshop is organized each semester for the resident assistants. The topics of the training include intercultural communication, awareness, conflict resolution, and personal experience. The resident assistants gain basic knowledge about working with international students, and can exchange personal experiences with one another.
