All About Life in an Adelphi Residence Hall
Each residence hall is supervised by a full-time, professional Assistant Director (AD) who is committed professionally and personally to the concept of the residence hall as a center of learning. The AD lives and works in the hall throughout the year and supervises a staff of trained graduate and undergraduate resident assistants (RAs).
Every year, the residents of each building elect a hall council. Through the Resident Student Association, these hall councils manage an activities budget, provide social and educational programs for residents, suggest additional policies that complement those established by the University and communicate student concerns to the Office of Residential Life and Housing.
