Resident advisers are upperclass students who live in the residence halls and are responsible for a floor of about 40 students. RAs serve as mentors and role models, promoting the principles of citizenship, leadership and self-governance. The RAs also receive support from four area coordinators who are upperclass undergraduate and graduate students with previous experience as an RA who reside on campus.
Additional money may be credited to the student's Crimson Card [THIS WILL NEED TO HYPERLINK TO NEW LOCATION IN FINANCIAL SERVICES]. This money can be used to buy food at Transy's four dining services, to pay for copies, and to pay for use of laundry machines or vending machines. If you need assistance, please call (859) 233-8154.
Transylvania's dining service provides meals in Forrer Dining Center for resident and commuter students, faculty, staff and visitors. Students living in all residence halls, with the exception of Fourth Street Apartments and our on-campus houses, are required to purchase a meal plan. Students may deposit money to their Crimson Card account which may be used in Forrer Dining Center, the Rafskeller, Jazzman’s Café and the 1780 Café. Students with special dietary needs should contact the director of dining services to make arrangements for meals to suit their specific needs.
