Residence Life Offers Expanded Services to Better Serve Students
by: Kathleen Schreier, Area Director – Center for Residence Life
Students at RIT are very busy with classes, jobs, leadership positions and hanging out with friends. Often time students living in the apartments have had questions or concerns but just didn’t have the time or ability to get to the Apartment Area office located in Colony Manor. In an effort to be more accessible to students and to offer better customer service, the Center for Residence Life opened two new offices this academic year.
Residents living in University Commons (UC), Riverknoll, the Greek Circle freestanding houses, and Global Village now have access to an office within walking distance. The Apartment Area West office is located at 113 Kimball Drive next to the Riverknoll laundry room (formerly the Westside package pick-up office). This office is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM. If you have a quick question or need information, one of our Community Advocates working at the front desk will be able to assist you. You can also set up appointments to speak with the Community Director for Global Village, Harold Fields, or the Area Director for UC, Riverknoll, and Greek Circle, Kathleen Schreier.
Residence Life knows that some days you have back-to-back commitments that keep you on the academic side of campus. This can make it difficult to get to your Residence Life area office during normal business hours. We are proud to now offer a Satellite Office located in the new Campus Center. Drop-in hours are Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM and Wednesdays from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM. Stop in to talk to a Residence Life staff member about your Housing assignment, roommate concerns, or just to say hi! You can find us on the A level of the Campus Center within the Center for Campus Life suite.
Students living in Colony Manor, the RIT Inn & Conference Center, Racquet Club, and Perkins Green will continue to receive great service through the Apartment Area East office at 1 Colony Manor. There you can find the Area Director for these complexes, Amy Greer, as well as Staff Assistant, Cate Fox, and Assistant Director, Sharon Kompalla.
For more information, contact a Residence Life staff member of stop by one of the offices listed above. We look forward to offering you excellent service this year!
