About Student Conference Coordinators

Being a Student Conference Coordinator is about working with your team to plan for and organize conference groups. It’s about providing exceptional customer service. It’s about responding to and following up with the concerns and questions of conference groups, ensuring that the check-in and check-out process is well planned and runs smoothly. It’s about doing what needs to be done: attending meetings, entering data, packaging keys, inspecting facilities. It’s about being on-call to ensure our guests are looked after even when the office is closed. It’s about playing an active role in organizing conference groups and getting real life work experience; gaining new skills and developing the ones you already have.

About Community Advisors

Being part of the ResLife team is about working with your residents to develop a vibrant, exciting place for students
to live.

It's about playing an active role in what your peers learn about their university experience. It's also about having a good time, and making sure you take the time to enjoy yourself and laugh. More than anything else though, it's about you -- about taking the initiative to step up and lead your peers and work with them to make their Residence experience the best ever. And in turn this will be an outstanding experience for you!
