Professional Employment

 

Hall Director

Thank you for your interest in a position with the Department of University Housing. UT offers unique opportunities for new professionals to engage and grow in housing and student affairs. We conduct national searches for our positions and are committed to identifying a culturally diverse pool of qualified candidates. University Housing staff will be interviewing at the Placement Exchange Conference, and our staff will contact candidates to set up interviews at the conference site.

Please feel free to visit our university and departmental websites. Should you decide to pursue a position with our department, please visit UT’s Human Resources website.

POSITION DESCRIPTION


We encourage residents to recycle, especially during check-in at the beginning of the year and check-out at the end. During fall 2014, University Housing worked with the Office of Sustainability and recycled 22,000 pounds of cardboard. In addition to these efforts, University Housing partners with the Office of Sustainability to host the Make Orange Green POWER Challenge to see which hall is best at recycling and reducing energy and water consumption. University Housing and the campus community constantly strive to be more environmentally friendly. To learn more about environmental initiatives on campus, visit environment.utk.edu.

We encourage continual growth and development among our hall directors. After a hall director has become well versed with the yearlong responsibilities associated with operating a residence hall, the department encourages part of the hall director’s time to be allotted to another department on campus with the understanding that the hall director position is the primary responsibility.

The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, is a 550-acre campus in the city of Knoxville, Tennessee, within an hour’s drive from the Great Smoky Mountains. Knoxville has a population of 174,000 in a metro area of 698,000.
