When you accept a position in Housing Operations, you join a team of hardworking professionals who work together to provide a residential experience that fosters the personal growth and integration of every Notre Dame student. Since its founding, Notre Dame has sought to form the whole person, recognizing the education of the mind could not be done at the expense of the heart. From those early days, great energy, and resources have been focused on residential education in which personal formation in community helps young people to understand themselves better, become more aware of the needs of others, and grow in their capacity to thrive amidst the various challenges that life will throw at them. Our mission requires the efforts of talented men and women committed to this ideal who assist residents by serving directly in our residence halls and as support personnel who facilitate residential living both on and off campus. The Office of Residential Life is looking for the right person to complement the servant leaders dedicated to our mission of helping young people prepare to be change agents and leaders in their neighborhoods, their communities, and the world.
