Residential Life

People

Student housing at UMKC is about more than just offering you a place to eat and sleep — it's about your total educational experience. We know that having a home away from home where you can hang out with friends or play a game of volleyball in the courtyard is important after going to class and making the grade.


That's why all housing at UMKC is fully supported by staff members who advise and counsel students through the many challenges and celebrations that college has to offer.

Resident Assistants

Our Resident Assistants are extensively trained in crisis management, confrontation, mediation and several other important topics. Our staff also supports our students by supplying them with the tools and educational resources that they need through their journey here at UMKC. This is done by programming to the needs of our students through many different speakers and educational events.


Desk Attendants

Desk Attendants are students who work the front desks of each of our residence halls.  They provide assistance by answering questions, checking out equipment, performing mail service, taking maintenance requests, provide lockout services, and more.
