Res life staff 2019-2020


Our departmental mission is to provide residents and University guests with a safe, comfortable, and affordable environment that promotes learning, social interaction and personal growth; to effectively and efficiently maintain facilities, advance technology and provide services that are attentive to resident needs and concerns.

Guiding Principles

  • Provide consistent superior customer service
  • Practice ethical behavior at all times
  • Embrace flexibility, forward thinking, and continuous improvement
  • Foster a collaborative and diverse community through inclusion and respect
  • Work in cooperation and partnership with all parts of the University
  • Value sustainability through the responsible use of resources


Creating engaged communities and supporting individual development are important goals, and can stand on their own. However, they also intersect and impact each other. We challenge, nurture and support our students and community through our Department Curriculum Goals: involvement, academics, social justice and healthy living. All of these goals are accomplished through active and passive programming, casual and directed developmental contact with students, and intentional supervision of resident assistants and assistant hall directors.

The University of New Hampshire is committed to building and nurturing an environment of inclusive excellence where all students, faculty, and staff can thrive. We also are committed to providing open and inclusive access for all alumni, volunteers, learners, employees, and visitors seeking to participate in our programs and activities. We venture to sustain a campus environment that fosters mutual respect and understanding. We believe diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion are foundational values inextricably linked to achieving our core educational mission and embrace the many characteristics of our community members that make them uniquely themselves. Here, you belong and all are welcome.
