The services, skills, and time of a professional staff member are available in the Residence Hall.

Resident Director

The residence hall has a live-in Resident Director (RD) who is responsible for the management of the housing complex, its various facilities and operations, and for the development of the residential population. An RD is a full-time, professional staff member, who supervise the other residential life staff, encourage recreational, social, educational and cultural programming and is available for individual counseling and referrals to other university services.

Resident Assistants

Each residence hall floor (about 15-40 students) has a Resident Assistant (RA) who is selected and trained to assist with student concerns, personal, social, and academic needs, and general university and community issues. In addition, these staff members are trained to handle emergency situations, enforce university and residence hall policies and regulations, and carry out general administrative tasks.

Maintenance & Custodians

OSU-Cascades has its own maintenance staff and custodians. Staff performs daily common area cleaning, trash removal/recycling, and minor repairs through resident-initiated work order requests. Residents may request repairs or service at any time through the maintenance request process.
