At Armory House we have more Resident Advisors (RAs) per student (1 RA to 28 students) than any other student dormitory on campus. They help you move in on official Move-In Days, and they plan social activities from day one that provide opportunities for you to get acquainted and make new friends. You will find our Resident staff to be friendly and helpful when you have questions or need assistance, and should a problem arise, they are here to help you resolve it. 

We are proud to introduce our Resident staff for the 2018-2019 academic year:


 Anna Hobson- AH Resident Director

Hello! My name is Anna Hobson and I am the Armory House Resident Director. I am a Psychology major in my senior year here at UIUC, and I’m also finishing up my Linguistics and Anthropology minors. I am originally from England, but I’ve spent most of my life here in the US! This will be my third year on the Armory House team, so I usually know what’s going on! My door will always be open if you have any questions or concerns, or even if you need a friendly ear. It’s going to be a great year!



Yanqing (Geri) Lyu- AH Resident Advisor

Hello! My name is Yanqing Lyu, or you can call me Geri. I’m from Shanghai, China. I am a junior in Kinesiology. I enjoy exercising and biology. Basketball is my biggest passion, but I also enjoy watching soccer, tennis, and Formula 1 in my free time. I lived in Armory House my freshman year and it felt like home even though my hometown is a 12-hour flight away. At Armory House, I found great friends and felt lucky that I chose such a welcoming place to live. I’ll try my best to make your experience just as good as mine, if not better! Feel free to ask me any questions and don’t hesitate to come find me if you are bored and want something to do! I can’t   wait to meet you.
