First Florida Experience

RAs are among the very best “amenities” Where Gators Live! RAs are undergraduate students who live in the residence halls and apartments and are friends, mentors, resources, encouragers, and helpers. They facilitate the world-class experience gators enjoy in the residence halls and complexes. If you have a question, need advice, are wondering how to submit a work order, or want to chat with someone who knows the ropes at UF and is excited about helping you achieve your goals, your RA is your guide! They look forward to connecting with you soon via Thursdays at 3, attending the Great Gator Welcome events, and through the REALM curriculum, all of which you can read more about below.
While the spirit of our model for our gators’ residential experience and learning is the same, delivery will look different this Fall! Engagement opportunities in the halls will be thoughtfully delivered with physical distancing or virtually. Nothing is more important to us than the safety and health of our gators!

Our Learning Priority is for students to live, learn, and lead in the residence halls in alignment with the university mission and our Florida Five educational goals. The intention is to provide a signature experience that supplements student learning, which will further enable students to positively impact their communities, the Gator Nation, and the world.
