After You Move In

  • Resident Advisors are upper-level students who live in your building/floor and are a resource for on-campus students. RAs are trained specifically in community engagement, conflict management, and policy enforcement. If you have any concerns or questions throughout the year, please feel free to contact your RA.
  • During the first part of the semester, RAs will facilitate conversations with each room about expectations for community living. Roommate agreements are a tool used to facilitate conversations about typical lifestyle preferences that will allow students to discuss how to best compromise with each other while living together.
  • Roommate conflicts
    • Living with others can present unique challenges and compromise will be necessary. We ask that all students attempt to work out conflicts together by speaking with one another. If needed, the students can speak with their RA and the RA will help mediate any conflict that arises. If, after speaking with the RA, the conflict is not resolved, the RA will involve their Residence Life Coordinator (a professional Masters Level Staff member) to assist.
    • Typically, all rooms are filled at the beginning of the year and switching rooms is usually not an available option. Students can sign up for room change week which typically occurs the 3rd or 4th week of the semester. If a room is available, we will work with the students to find a different space.
  • Your RA will coordinate a wing or floor meeting after you move in. At this meeting you will meet your neighbors and learn about important policies and procedures while living on campus.This meeting is mandatory and you should check with your RA about the date, time, and location of the meeting.
  • When you move in you will have the opportunity to join your building's or area's Area Council. Area Council is a group of students that plan fun social events for the hall. This is a great opportunity to get involved right away and gain some amazing leadership skills right where you live. Each Area Council has an executive board led by a student president. Please see your RA or Residence Life Coordinator with any questions.
  • Laundry is provided at no charge to students. Please bring any laundry supplies (detergent, dryer sheets) that you may need.
  • We recommend playing close attention to your laundry and changing it out in a timely fashion.
  • You can check if a laundry machine is available without even leaving your room. LaundryView will let you know how many washers and dryers are available in your building.
  • Large laundry room in Student Village, Doolittle, Apollo and Chanute
  • Laundry facilities directly on the floors of the New Residence Halls
  • All residents connected to EagleNet on-campus internet services have access to ERAU cable and streaming services.
  • Residents can download the SpectrumU TV live streaming mobile app to watch TV anytime and anywhere on campus using their mobile devices, tablets, laptops and TV streaming devices.
