Residential Engagement

Our Housing and Residence Life team is dedicated to crafting a vibrant residential environment that promotes student growth and learning through diverse events and programs. In line with Hinds CC’s and Student Services’ missions, we aim to create a living space in the residence halls that encourages living, learning, and leadership development.

Resident Assistants

The Resident Assistants (RAs) oversee specific areas within residence halls, providing support for personal and academic issues, resolving conflicts, and nurturing a community for residents. They play a crucial role in building community through activities and serve as resourceful guides for campus and residential life. RAs are committed to creating a valuable living experience. For RA applications or inquiries, email or call 601-857-3222.
