Department Description:

The Department of Housing and Residential Education is responsible for on-campus housing and in-residence student learning. In total, the department manages and provides programming for 33 residence halls and 400 student family apartments, housing over 8,600 students. In addition, the department manages conference operations during the summer.
The department operates as an auxiliary generating over $53 million annually. The department receives no State funds, which makes the operation unique in that it must manage both revenue and expense projections and budgets. The department is also dynamic in that it must continuously adjust to changes in demand, rate levels, and a changing landscape of construction and renovation, and enrollment growth.
The nature of the department itself is dynamic (continuous change, adaptability to changing demand, budgets, and conditions, receipt supported, and highly dependent on the success of growth in demand to meeting growing budget requirements and space availability). The department is unique to the University and is specialized in coordinating all facets of on-campus housing for over 10,000 students and students with families.
