Living in the Halls

Residence Hall Staff


Hall Directors (HD)

HDs are full-time live-in staff who oversee the operations, programs, staffing and community development of the residence halls through the supervision of resident assistants and desk assistants. HDs have offices located in the building and are a great resource for students who may need someone to talk to about their experiences with academics, their community, their resident assistant or other life events.

Assistant Hall Directors (AHD)

AHDs are live-in graduate students who assist in the operation and community development of two residence halls.

Resident Assistants (RA)

Each floor or wing has an RA, an undergraduate live-in student who is responsible for building community, offering programming and assisting students. RAs are familiar with a wide variety of campus resources and are great resources for students.

Desk Assistants (DA)

DAs are live-in undergraduate students who work at a residence hall’s front desk. They provide support to students who are in need of front desk services including equipment check out, mail and packages, and general information.


Custodians are full-time staff who work diligently to provide a clean and safe environment for our students. Student custodians assist our full-time staff in cleaning and maintaining the residence halls.
