Apply to be a Graduate Hall Director at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania

Applications are due by March 6, 2018

General Purpose

Reporting to an Area Coordinator in Residence Life, Graduate Hall Directors (GHDs) are responsible for the daily management of a residence hall or apartment complex. GHDs will be afforded a rich experience managing up to 700 students and up to 16 staff members within a residential setting. At their core, GHDs are helpers. As such, GHDs are expected to put students and staff first, working through any issues or challenges that may arise. In fulfilling their duties, graduate staff will work closely with, and be fully supported by, professional staff members in Residence Life. Additionally, graduate staff members are provided opportunities to broaden and deepen their experience through participation on departmental committees, staff training, staff selection, evaluation and through the on-call rotation. GHD's must be enrolled full time in one of our Graduate Programs.


Graduate Hall Directors receive a furnished campus suite, a University meal plan (when the University is in session for the Fall And Spring semesters) and a full waiver of all tuition encumbered through their graduate program. GHDs will also receive a weekly stipend of 20 hours per week and a parking space close to their residence hall or apartment. This remuneration may be altered if budgetary requirements of the University change.
