Effective July 1, 2013, MGA employees (who are employed by departments other than Residence Life) may be assigned housing space in the residence halls on a space-available basis under the following conditions:

  • Vacant residence life staff rooms may be assigned to non-residence life, non-student, MGA employees through an application and interview process. The non-residence life employee must, in lieu of paying monthly rent, provide backup assistance for residence life staff members on an as-needed basis outside their primary job’s regular work schedule and are required to stay one weekend per month, Friday through Sunday, as acting residence hall director or in other capacities as assigned and scheduled by the Director of Residence Life. The non-residence life employee will additionally plan, coordinate, and manage one weekly LLC program, as well as one monthly activity/program for students within the living learning community.
  • Vacant student rooms on the third floor of Harris Hall may be rented to MGA non-student employees. The employee must pay the prevailing equivalent monthly Harris Hall room rate (1/6 of the per semester room rate). Consolidating employees in the apartments may be required. Housing cannot be assigned nor guaranteed if such assignment would displace a student willing to contract for the space.

Non-residence life employees are not eligible to receive free meal plans as part of their occupancy in the residence hall. The employee shall agree in writing to the requirements of this policy and to follow the same rules and regulations as residence hall employees. The college reserves the right to terminate the room assignment or rental agreement at any time if, in the judgment of the residence life department and/or the university administration, it is not in the best interest of the university or its students to continue the agreement.
