Hi Nicholas, welcome to the Community :) 

The repository will continue to be owned by you, unless you transfer the ownership to someone else. 

Giving other users admin permissions will allow them to change repository settings, update user permissions, and delete the repository, but the owner remains still one level above.

I hope this clears your concern. If you have any other questions, let us know and we'll be happy to help!

Best regards,
