Assistant Hall Directors

The Assistant Hall Director (AHD) AHD job is a crucial part of our Residential Life system. AHDs assist the Hall Director in each of our large halls with staff supervision and training as well as advising the hall council. This is a great opportunity for students who are looking into the Student Affairs field or just looking to increase their leadership skills.

"My name is Alison Smith and I am the AHD for Stoke Hall! I’m a senior in the Communication Sciences and Disorders program, with minors in Spanish and Education. I was an RA for two years— first in Alexander Hall, and then in Williamson Hall. This is my fourth year as a member of UNH’s Rowing Team, second year as captain. I am also the Director of the uLEAD Team, a group of students that provide peer-to-peer workshops for student organizations on topics such as team building and organization. I work in the Office of Student Involvement and Leadership in the MUB—when I’m not hanging out in Stoke Palace, I’m usually chilling in the OSIL. I love hiking, rowing, hanging out with my friends, napping in my hammock, and eating! UNH has taught me to Do What You Love, and Love What You Do!"-Alison Smith - Stoke Hall

"My name is Yeski Radja Haba and I am the Assistant Hall Director for Williamson Hall. I am a senior majoring in finance at Paul College and minoring in deaf studies. I am also a student supervisor at the GSS Mailroom in the MUB where students get their mail. This is my third year working in Residential Life and I love working here! I was an RA in Stoke Hall my sophomore year and Fairchild Hall my junior year.  I was also an orientation leader for incoming students in Summer 2014. I have loved all of my experiences working with students and that is why I am looking to pursue my Master’s degree in Student Affairs and Higher Education after UNH. I have also been participating in volleyball intramurals for four years now and it is truly a fun way to get active. You can usually find me around the MUB and the local coffee shops. I am looking forward to a fun and exciting year in Williamson with the first year students! #WillygivesyouWings"-Yeski Radja Haba - Williamson Hall

"Hello everyone, I am Siddharth Nigam (Sid) and I'm the Assistant Hall Director of the Upper Quad. I am a senior majoring in Honors Mechanical Engineering and International Affairs with a minor in Applied Mathematics. My journey to the AHD job was incredible. I was a Resident Assistant in Handler Hall for the last 2 years. I have been the President of the Indian Subcontinent Students' Association for the last 2 years, and was President of National Society of Black Engineers last year. I love playing Fifa, soccer, and ping-pong. I am planning to go to graduate school for a PhD in Engineering and I am very involved in research on campus. I also love working with and for people and building great communities. That and my passion for social justice are the reasons why I chose to be an Assistant Hall Director." - Siddarth Nigam - Upper Quad Halls

"My name is Lauren, and I am the Assistant Hall Director of Christensen Hall. I am a senior history major who studies New Hampshire's history of piracy. You read correctly. I also have four cats (there is a story behind this). I love to dance, volunteer, and watch football (especially UNH!). I absolutely love working with freshmen, and it is my goal to help you see the world as your oyster.

This university presents so many incredible opportunities for students to grow intellectually, emotionally, and socially. It is our goal to help students become self advocates in order to make the most out of their college experiences. I am going to graduate school for Higher Education and Student Affairs in order to help future students discover their passions and their purposes. Remember... There is no pride like #XSenPride!" Lauren Percy - Christensen Hall


This 20 hour/week, non-benefits job currently runs from mid-August (date yet to be determined) to a few days after closing in May and includes:

The AHDs gain valuable leadership and supervision skills that would be a great asset for heading out into the job market or continuing on to graduate school.

Ideally, candidates for the AHD position would be entering their senior year at UNH and will have completed one or two years of the RA job. But anyone is encouraged to apply. This position is not available to graduate students.

"We are excited about this position. We are able to promote successful RAs from our staff into these positions." - Scott Chesney, Director
