Working for Resident Safety

Many students choose to work as Resident Safety Representatives (RSR) because of its many benefits.  Some of those benefits are …

  • Contribute to the safety of your campus
    As an RSR, you would play an important role in upholding the safety of the residence halls.  RSRs take pride in their jobs, knowing that they help make the campus a safer place.
  • Choose Your Own Hours
    The program operates 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, therefore, students are able to create work schedules that accommodate their busy lives.
  • Work Close to Home
    Working on campus makes employment accessible to students who do not have their own transportation, maintain hectic schedules, etc.  Some students even choose to work in their own residence hall.
  • Meet New People
    The Resident Safety Program is made up of over 350 students.  RSRs have extensive contact with residents, their guests and other RSRs.   This exposure can lead to new friendships. 
  • Gain Great Work Experience
    Working for Resident Safety prepares you for your future employment when you graduate from Hofstra University.  You gain valuable experience dealing with people, resolving difficult situations, problem-solving, and protecting people and property.
  • Opportunity For Advancement
    RSRs can apply for the Team Leader and Resident Safety Shift Coordinator positions when they feel they are ready to take on additional responsibilities.  Resident Safety Shift Coordinators can advance to the Student Coordinator position, the highest position available to students in the Resident Safety Program.
