Housing Job Opportunities

Residence Hall Director (RHD)

RHDs are graduate students pursuing their degree in College Student Personnel Administration, which means they plan to continue working with students as their career.  The RHD lives and/or has an office in your building, so they are very accessible to you. Duties and ways RHDs serve their communities: 

  • They supervise the CA staff and the other student staff in the building.
  • RHDs advise the Hall Council of the building and are very involved in helping your building develop a strong sense of community.
  • Their role is to help the CA staff meet your needs and to help ensure the building is well maintained.
  • An RHD is the second person to go to for any issues and challenges you have and any building maintenance problems, after your CA/ACA.

RHDs are also conduct officers, which means if you experience a behavioral challenge you will meet with them to discuss how to prevent poor choices from harming your success.

Please stop by your RHD's office to say hello or if you have questions/need assistance.  Most RHD offices are located in the lobby of the residence halls.  Each RHD's office hours are posted on their door each week.

ACAs also have administrative responsibilities such as responding to emergency situations and assisting residents in reporting maintenance requests.

ACA Applications open mid-Spring semester

Desk Manager

Desk Managers are students who have responsibility for scheduling Office Assistants (OAs) at the front desks within the halls to provide customer service and coverages for all desk tasks.  Desk Managers train and supervise the Office Assistants on desk operations as well as assist with the hiring of staff.  Desk Managers are also responsible for administrative tasks such as hall supply check-out procedures, monitoring the mail sorting and forwarding system, as well as communicating issues to the Residence Hall Director or Apartment Complex Manager.

Desk Manager Applications available in February

Office Assistant

OAs are students who work at the front desk of the residence halls, most of which are staffed 24 hours a day. OAs answer questions, distribute mail, and most importantly, monitor safety. They make sure the fire safety equipment is monitored at all time and provide services like selling stamps, making change, checking out equipment, etc.
