Safety & Security

Resident Assistants/Resident Managers

Single Student Housing is staffed by live-in Resident Assistants (RA) and Resident Managers (RM). These individuals play an important role in promoting on-campus safety. Resident Assistants are Dixie State University students who provide support and resources to the residents in their communities. Resident Managers are usually a married couple who live in the building and provide management and oversight to the duties performed by the Resident Assistants.



Each night, Resident Assistants walk rounds in and around the on-campus housing facilities and report any suspicious behavior. They also use this time to connect with students in the halls and discuss the happenings in on-campus housing. Live-in staff also carry an after-hours duty phone that students may call if they are in need of assistance when the Housing Office is closed.


Security and Campus Police Department

The Dixie State University Security and Campus Police Department is an accredited state police agency. The Campus Police officers patrol the on-campus housing areas regularly and are in good communication with the Housing and Resident Life staff. They carry an on-duty phone that students may call at any hour of the day.
