Residence Life Staff

Our department employs resident advisors (1 per approximately 40 residents) who provide activities, answer questions, mediate roommate conflicts, enforce policies, or just lend an ear. These staff members are upper-class students who have been through a thorough selection process and an intensive training program.


Residence Hall Directors have responsibility for a cluster of buildings on campus. Each of the RHDs is a full time staff member with previous experience in Student Affairs. They each live on campus.

Residents are encouraged to make the effort to get to know their RHD, and to utilize his/her ability to be an advisor, a counselor or just a friend. Aside from counseling residents, RHDs have responsibility for supervising a staff team of Resident Advisors and for all of the paperwork related to running a residence hall. This includes keeping track of room assignments and changes, check-in and check-out information, renewals and maintenance. RHDs also serve as disciplinarians, and are responsible for enforcing policies and laws just as RAs. They are trained to serve as information sources, and can usually help students find answers to questions about academics, the administration, etc.  All Residence Hall Directors report to an Assitant Director.

In addition to the staff who live and work in the buildings, our full-time office and maintenance staff are also available to assist you. The Residence Life Office is open weekdays 8 am - 5 pm.
