The On-Campus Experience

Resident Assistants

Resident Assistants (RAs) are undergraduate students who live in the residence halls and are friends, mentors, and resources. They will guide your experience as a Gator. If you have a question, need advice, are wondering how to submit an iService Request, or want to chat with someone who knows the ropes at UF and is excited about helping you achieve your goals, your RA is here for you! Be on the lookout for information regarding your first-floor meeting, and upcoming hall events.

Great Gator Welcome

The Division of Student Life welcomes you to the University of Florida with our annual Great Gator Welcome events! These events happen at the beginning of each semester and are always a blast. Grab your roommate or some new friends from your hall and catch a welcome event happening near you.
