Residence Hall Staff

Every residence hall community is guided by a Hall Director. The first priority for each Hall Director is the development and formation of college students and building community among the residents of the hall. The Hall Director is responsible for selecting a staff of resident assistants and for furthering the personal, social, academic, and spiritual growth of the residents.

The Hall Director is supported by the Assistant Hall Director. The Assistant Hall Director’s primary responsibilities mirror those of the Hall Director: encouraging the development and formation of college students and building community among the residents of the hall. The Assistant Hall Director’s additional responsibilities include assisting with faith and liturgy development, managing front desk operations, advising the Hall Council, and coordinating maintenance and work order management.

Resident Assistants are full-time undergraduate students carefully selected by the Hall Director for their leadership experience, interpersonal skills, and desire to have a positive impact on the residential community. Resident Assistants assist in the general management of the hall, plan community activities and educational programs, and serve as a role model to the other residents in the hall.

Each residence hall community also benefits from the presence of a Pastoral Resident. The Pastoral Resident is generally a priest or brother of the Congregation of Holy Cross who lives in the residence hall and works alongside the Hall Director, Assistant Hall Director, and Resident Assistants. Pastoral Residents help build the faith community of the hall through presiding at weekly Hall Mass, planning liturgies, retreats, and prayer services. As part of the Hall staff team, they are resources for students in the hall.
