Office Overview

The Office of Residential Life and Housing services nearly 11,000 students and over 400 student staff members.  In order to effectively support such a large population, our office is driven by our mission and values that guide and inform our interactions with students, parents, faculty  and staff. Below you will see and learn how our structure, talent, and committees informs the work we do through our mission.


Standing committees exist to coordinate large functions or initiatives for the department. Membership to a committee will be determined based on group need and representation of categories of staff in the department. Each committee has a central staff liaison who is responsible for the sharing of information between the committee and the department leadership.

Office and Divisional Networks

The office networks exist to provide a source of fellowship or support to members of the department. The networks are valuable components to the experience of our working environment and are distinct from department committees. Membership or participation with a network is completely open and voluntary. Members self-identify, groups are open to all, and there is no limit to the size of groups.
