UCSB Residential & Community Living is looking for up to nine energetic and enthusiastic Resident Assistants (RAs) for our Family Student Housing (FSH) communities: Storke and West Campus. Below you can find details about the application process, as well as our timeline. The 2022-2023 RA application will be open January 25, 2022 through February 8, 2022 at 12 noon. Please feel free to email us with any questions should any come up. Best of luck!
Returner candidates (current and former RAs), please visit the Returner Candidates page.
Because the Family Student Housing Resident Assistant position differs a bit from their Undergraduate counterpart, we also offer virtual supplemental informational sessions for both Graduate and Family Student Housing candidates. If you missed a session, you may view the presentation slides online.
Please review our RA Informational Video and the Residential & Community Living vision statements below. Based on these, please create a one to two minute video showing us why you would make a great RA. Please include a link to your video in your application. Uploading tips will be provided when the application opens.
Non-student partner applicants: When you get to the RA Application page, please click "Housing Portal Account" if you have already created one in our system; otherwise, click "Register," then create an account. The following page will ask for some basic information. After completing this or logging in with your Housing Portal Account, you should be taken to the application. Please email us if you have any issues or questions.
