Residence Hall Directors and Graduate Assistants

RHDs/GARHDs are expected to provide welcoming and vibrant communities that foster personal growth and enhance the student experience. Hall staff do this through staff supervision, student and staff development, resident outreach and advocacy, community building, attention to facilities, student conduct meetings, and administrative organization.

Desk Managers and Desk Assistants

The purpose of the residence hall front desk is to be a resource for residents, staff, and visitors to the community. Housing and Residence Life strives to provide a service-oriented atmosphere at the front desks where people feel comfortable coming for all types of assistance. Front desk staff members also provide security and safety assistance that directly impacts the building residents.

Desk Managers (DMs) are student staff who oversee all aspects of managing a residence hall front desk, including desk organization, operation, and supervision. Desk Assistants (DAs) are student staff who greet visitors; receive and contact students about deliveries; check out equipment; and answer questions about the community, campus, and/or Flagstaff.
