Wartburg prides itself on being a four-year residential institution! Because we put so much emphasis on the education that happens outside of the classroom we feel it is vital that students have professional resources available in the Residence Halls as well as in the classroom. Each residential area is staffed by an RHD (Residence Hall Director) who is a full time, live-on professional trained in student development, conflict resolution and crisis management. RHDs oversee the Resident Assistants (RAs), serve as a resource to students and adjudicate policy violations. Click here to learn more about the residence hall professional staff.
Each floor has an upper-class student called a Resident Assistant (RA) who is hired and trained to help you! If you have any questions or need advice your RA can be your first and most often used resource! Wartburg Residential Life employs 47 RAs and 2 Academic Service Coordinators.
RAs come back to campus before the academic year begins to receive training, attend weekly meetings, hold floor programs, community building activities and floor meetings, and ensure that all Wartburg policies are being upheld by their fellow students.
