Residence Life

Every residence hall has a hall director and every floor has one or two student resident advisers. Hall directors and resident advisors are employees of the university who live in the residence halls and are responsible for maintaining safety procedures, supporting the objectives of the university and implementing programs of the student life division where friendships are formed and personal growth is encouraged.  Who is my hall directory/resident advisor?

Residence life will create an environment of hospitality while advocating for holistic student development.
