Graduate Staff

A graduate assistantship with University Housing will give you the opportunity to develop strong personal and professional skills by gaining experience beyond the structured classroom. Graduate residents (GRs) are responsible for providing leadership and maintaining positive relationships among students and staff. Our GRs work with other graduate students to promote the personal growth and academic success of our students. GRs foster a supportive and challenging inclusive environment through intentional interactions and daily engagement with students and our staff team. Our assistantships provide valuable skill sets which prepare you for the future and put you on the path to success whether you plan on pursuing a career in student affairs or another career path.
