You can tell ResLife Portal has been designed by those who have lived and worked in housing. This program has allowed us merge so many processes into one location. The RAs and professional can easily track their personal and building program requirements, programming budget, view calendar to avoid program overlaps, track resident participation in programs, submit weekly reports, log duty round reports and record individual student interactions. We love it!!!

Our RAs love how easy ResLife Portal is to use. They can view their program submissions, check their personal programming budget and view what other programs are happening and that's just part of the programming piece. For Customer Service – Customer service is very quick, respectful and personable. I appreciate ResLife Portal is willing to take suggestions to improve an already great program.

Why is it Free?

ResLife Portal was initially built in 2007 based upon first-hand experience in residential life at a Division I university campus. Since 2007, the mission of ResLife Portal continues to be focused on assisting residential life staff at colleges and universities to dynamically track programming effectiveness, staff member performance expectations, and effective communication.

We understand that budgets can be tight. More importantly, we have seen the value created for colleges and universities from using ResLife Portal. We wanted to make a selection of capabilities within our system available to any college or university. The advertisements within the ResLife Portal Free Edition exist since we still have bills to pay.
