The Hall Director position at the University of New Hampshire is a generalist position which provides a good foundation for future work in student affairs. Hall Directors spend their time focusing on a variety of job tasks in their halls, many of which are focused on developmental contact with students. Overall, we strive to create an experience that is fun, diverse, challenging, autonomous and holistic. We hope that about half of a Hall Director’s time will be spent engaging in either a reactive manner (conduct, roommate conflicts, etc.) or a proactive manner (individual conduct, programming, etc.). The other 50% of their time should be sufficient for the remaining job expectations. There will be times when more than 40 hours per week will be necessary (opening) and other times when less than 40 hours per week may be appropriate.
Housing Office Mission
Our mission is to provide residents and University guests with a safe, comfortable, and affordable living environment that promotes learning, social interaction and personal growth; to maintain facilities, advance technology and provide services that are attentive to resident needs and concerns; and to ensure efficient and effective management of operations and resources.
Residential Life Mission
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.
