Residential College Advisers

Guiding Students on University Life




The Residential College Advisers (RCAs) and the Community Living Advisers (CLAs) play an integral role in fostering a safe, inclusive, and engaging community for all residential college students by fostering community, encouraging holistic personal development, and promoting safety, citizenship, and health and wellness to build an inclusive environment. Each adviser group (core group) in the residential college is supervised by their Assistant Dean for Student Life (DSL).

The RCAs work closely with a group of first-year advisees (zees) to help them transition to life as Princeton students.

Community Living Advisers (CLAs) are assigned to continuing students (sophomores, juniors and seniors). 

RCAs and CLAs are expected to foster relationships among their residents so that they feel comfortable reaching out to them for guidance and support throughout the academic year.
