Your Residence Life Student Staff Team

Residence Life Dons

Dons are upper-year students whose role is to ensure the needs of their students and community are being met. Dons provide support, build genuine relationships with their students, promote responsible behaviour, act as academic and social role models and encourage respect and awareness of diversity. They facilitate programs and events to provide opportunities for personal growth, community building and to have fun.

Residence Education Advisors

Residence Education Advisors (REAs) are responsible for facilitating residence-wide programming that supports academic success and personal growth at Laurier. REAs focus on implementing the residential curriculum and act as a programming resource for Dons throughout the year. They assess, report and create programming that responds to community needs and student trends. Be sure to get to know your REA and attend their ongoing events throughout the year.
