Resident Assistants (RAs) are the foundation of the Student Life Programme at LUC. The 17 RAs function as a team under the guidance of the Student Life Officer and in collaboration with the Student Life Counsellors.
The RAs are committed to ensuring the personal well-being of the resident-students at the Anna van Buerenplein and in helping to build a sense of community. The RAs are the first point of contact for personal concerns and issues related to residential life, in a confidential capacity. The RAs also take the initiative in organizing floor events and activities outside of LUC (at times in coordination with Fortuna, LUC’s students’ association. To ensure the well-being of all the residents, and that everyone in a diverse community has a suitable place to live and study, the RAs also help to see that the rules of the College are observed. The role of the RA can thus be easily summarized in three points:
- Helping residents with their personal concerns and the LUC/ Dutch bureaucracy
- Creating a community on the residential floors along the philosophy of LUC
- Helping with upholding the rules and regulations of LUC
Additionally, twenty-four-hour coverage of residents ’needs’ is provided under the “on-call” system, whereby one RA can be contacted at any time during the night and during the entire weekends and from 19.00 to 08.00 during weekdays by calling
The on-call list is posted on the doors of the rooms of the RA on each floor and by the lifts on floors 0 to 4.
