The PCH community has over 80 Residential Life staff living in their facilities to support their residents’ experience at Illinois. You will find Resident Advisors (RAs) and Resident Directors (RDs) on the floors within the buildings, all dedicated to creating strong communities for their residents.

All PCH Residential Life staff attend trainings within their buildings and complete a staff training program at the University. PCH staff also attend safety trainings.

RAs provide programming to help connect their residents to the communities within their buildings as well as with the campus community. Residents can participate in social events like Pumpkin Carving and Super Bowl view parties, as well as service events like fundraising for local charities. The Residential Life staff also plans academic support programs including study hours and tutoring sessions. Additionally, RAs are a resource to help get residents better connected to campus, including Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) and other campus offices.

The PCH RAs and RDS are trained on how to handle any emergency as well as how to get their residents connected to all emergency resources. Our staff collaborates with campus offices including the University of Illinois Police Department, the Emergency Dean and the Student Assistance Center at the Office of the Dean of StudentsMcKinley Health Center and the Counseling Center, as well other area medical facilities.
PCH facilities also have on-site professional staff that offer additional support services such as 24/7 front desk hours, maintenance, meal planning, housekeeping, and much more.
