Residential Staff

Residential Staff Overview

Within each of our residence halls we have both Residence Director(s) (RD) and a Residence Hall Operations Coordinator(s) (RHOC) who work to support the residents of the building and supervise the Residence Advisor & Main Desk Assistant teams to support the daily operations of the halls. Similarly on South Campus we have RDs and Assistant Residence Director(s) (ARD) to support the south campus communities. Our professional staff work together within neighborhood teams.
