Residence Ambassadors


Student Housing Services is seeking enthusiastic students to join our Residence Ambassador Program (RAP) Team!  

Residence Ambassadors show their residence rooms to prospective future applicants and their families, and also act as Residence Tour Guides during one or more campus-wide recruitment events.  

Residence Ambassadors:   
You will be available in your room (studying, reading, listening to tunes, etc.) at designated times according to your schedule (one 2-hr time slot per week).  A Campus Tour will stop by to say 'hi' and see your room.   

Time Commitment:    2 - 3.5 hours per week    * Training provided

Residence Tour Guides (during major recruitment events):
You will help to lead residence tours during our two big fall campus-wide recruitment events:  Fall Preview Day (November 5), Science and Engineering Sunday (November 12).  You will get a cool U of G Ambassador Team t-shirt and we feed you at each event.  

Time Commitment :  10:00 am to 4:00 pm   *Training Provided

* You can be both a Room Ambassador and an Residence Event Ambassador * 


Compensation:   All Residence Ambassadors who successfully complete their scheduled shifts will receive a $50 Stone Road Mall Gift Card.  In addition, all names will be entered in to a draw at the end of each semester for an iPhone.
