How Kipsu Helps in Every Area of Residential Life

Professional Staff


Professional Staff can monitor and track conversations between their residential assistants and students, with the ability to quickly intervene when a situation needs their attention.

Student Staff

Student Staff can effectively reach their residents and gather genuine feedback that may be uncomfortable to share in-person, allowing them to keep an accurate pulse on the residents in their care.

Students

Students are able to engage with their residence life team in the channel that is most familiar to them, making it easier to seek help around issues that they may feel uncomfortable or embarrassed talking about in-person.


“Kipsu has allowed us to engage with our residential students on a more personal level. Students love to text, and this platform strengthens our opportunities to meet their preferred communication method.”


- Dee Goines, Director of Residence Life, Housing, and Conference Services at University of North Texas-Dallas
