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 at SEAHO, and our staff will contact candidates to set up interviews at the conference site. Should you decide to pursue a position with our department, please visit UT’s Human Resources website and submit a formal application online.

 

POSITION DESCRIPTION


We encourage residents to recycle during the year, especially during check-in and check-out.  During fall 2020, University Housing worked with the Office of Sustainability and recycled 33,540 pounds of cardboard. At the end of the semester, residents are encouraged to donate any gently used clothing, unopened hygiene and laundry items, and unopened non-perishable food items to the community. In addition to these efforts, the 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.
