Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What does an RC’s typical workweek entail?

Residence Coordinators (RCs) spend the majority of their time within their residential community.  Days are typically filled with structured student meetings (RA and Community Senate one-on-ones, student conduct hearings, and student concern follow-up meetings), as well as time for impromptu visits from students.  Departmental meetings include a weekly Residence Education staff meeting, a one-on-one with your Assistant Director, and departmental/university committee meetings.  RCs have weekly RA staff meetings from 6-8 PM on Mondays and a Community Senate meeting once per week (usually an evening).

 

What is the type of interaction an RC can expect to have with their residents?

We highly value RCs being present and available to residents in their communities.  While a good percentage of your time as an RC will be dedicated to structured, scheduled meetings with residents and student staff, our most successful RCs are those who develop a culture within their community of residents “just stopping by” to check in and engage.

 

What advising roles exist for RCs?

Each RC advises a Community Senate for their building.  There are additional opportunities to advise RHA and RA conference delegations, based on RC interest.

 

What is an RC’s role in the student conduct process?

RCs serve as the primary student conduct hearing officer for incidents occurring in their community.  More serious incidents where university suspension or housing eviction might be considered are usually assigned to Assistant Directors or the Dean of Students Office.

 

What committee opportunities are available to RCs?

Each RC serves on both Res Ed committees, as well as two university-wide committees.  University committee opportunities include the No More Campaign (UW’s sexual assault awareness and response committee), Martin Luther King, Jr. Days of Dialogue, Shepard Symposium on Social Justice, University Sustainability Committee, and more.

 

What can I expect from RC training and orientation?

Formal Residence Education training will begin in late July, and will cover all the elements of the Residence Coordinator position.  Our orientation and onboarding process occurs prior to formal training, when the successful candidate first arrives on campus.  This includes meetings with key campus partners, learning key software systems, and getting set up as both a University of Wyoming employee and resident of Laramie.

 

What is the RC dynamic like?

While specific interpersonal dynamics change each time we welcome a new person to our team, the general dynamic between our RCs can be described as collaborative, friendly, and supportive.  Our RCs frequently rely on one another to consult about difficult student situations, to cover their building when they are out of the office, and on key projects and initiatives.  Many of our RCs hang out with one another outside of the office, and have developed friendships that extend beyond “just colleagues.”

 

What are the RC apartments like?

We love the RC apartments!  Our Residence Hall RC apartments are located on the first floor of the residence hall, and are 2-bedroom, 2-bath with both a private exterior entrance and an entrance from the residence hall main lobby.  The Residence Hall RC apartments were recently renovated and come with laminate flooring and stainless steel appliances.  The Apartments RC apartment is a 2-bedroom, 1-bath unit within our River Village apartment complex.  It is a two-story town home-style apartment that is located near the UW Plaza shopping center.  All of our RC apartments come fully furnished, with washer/dryer in-unit!

 

What other benefits are provided beyond salary and apartment?

To view the competitive benefit package provided to all full-time University of Wyoming staff, please visit our HR website.  Additional benefits provided to Residence Coordinators include:

  • Unlimited meal plan during academic year (15 meals per week during summer)
  • Reserved parking space outside of building (pass provided)
  • In-unit washer/dryer provided
  • Phone/internet/cable provided with complimentary HBO Go access
  • $40 monthly cell phone stipend (eligible for 18% UW discount w/ carrier)
  • Up to $3,000 reimbursement in moving expenses

 

Who can live with me in my RC apartment?

We allow RCs to have one adult roommate (spouse, significant other, family, friend, etc.).  The only two qualifications for a roommate to be allowed to live with you are that (a) they pass a criminal background screening, and (b) you do not charge them rent.  In addition to an adult roommate, RCs may also have any dependent children live with them.

 

What is the pet policy for RCs?

RCs are allowed to have one pet live with them.  Approved pets are limited to dogs (under 40 lbs), cats, and small caged pets (limited to rabbits, guinea pigs, hedgehogs, hamsters, gerbils, ferrets, mice, and rats). To view our full pet policy, click here.  Please note that we do not charge the pet deposit for Residence Coordinators.

 

If I am invited to campus for an interview, how are travel expenses handled?

UW will cover all costs associated with your on-campus interview, including travel, meals, and lodging.

 

What is it like living in Laramie, Wyoming?

We absolutely love Laramie, and think that you will too!  Laramie is a small town (population 35,000), and provides the charm and sense of community of a small college town, while also being very close to more urban areas in Colorado (Fort Collins is one hour away, Denver is two).  For more specifics about why we love Laramie, please see our Laramie Area Guide attachment!
