Residential Life

Program and Resident Life Staff:
Language House students are supported by two groups of staff who live in the building. For language immersion, each Language cluster has a Mentor, who is a native speaker. St. Mary's Hall also has two Resident Assistants (RAs), who live on each side of the building. The Program and Resident Staff are responsible for management of the residence halls, and for cultural, social, educational, and recreational programming. Students can aid the Staff in programming and become involved in their living environment.

To ensure the safety of residents in St. Mary's, the residents must swipe their uniquely coded student ID to enter the building and access the hallways. In addition, Residential Facilities provides a team of Security Staff who work from dusk till dawn inspecting each of the residence halls and ensuring locked doors and the overall safety of the buildings.

Students in St. Mary's currently have access to the service desk located in Queen Anne's Hall. The Service Desk is run by Community Assistants (CA) and serves as a center for information about student and campus group phone numbers, university resources, and is the place to borrow keys if locked out, and to pick up packages.

Learning Facilities:
St. Mary's Hall features a satellite system providing 24 hour programming in 10 foreign languages, a large multi-purpose room, language lab facilities, a study lounge, an international cafe, data connections to the University's computer system in every room and a less than a 5 minute walk to most academic buildings and libraries.
