Residence Life

Meet the Staff

Resident Advisors (RAs)

RAs are students who have a strong interest in helping other students and would like to assist you in having a successful year at Merrimack. These upper-class students will make every effort to work with you and your community to establish guidelines and living agreements that are comfortable for everyone. Through residential programming, the Resident Advisors work as educators to enhance your college experience. Another role of the RA is to assist communities in maintaining community standards and implementing College policy. They serve a vital role in helping to ensure that students can sleep, study, and live in a respectful environment.


The Faculty-in-Residence program is a collaboration that bridges the academic and residential realms of academic life at Merrimack College by integrating faculty into the residential community. Through the program, students are able to interact with faculty outside the classroom in a variety of programs and activities that occur within the residence halls. Dr. Jimmy Franco from the Chemistry department is the current faculty-in-residence.
