Resident Director Positions

Resident Director Positions

Why should you apply?
Resident Directors get 18 credit hours of tuition remission. It's a smart way to finance a Master's Degree, Doctorate, or other post-graduate work at one of Fordham's diverse Graduate Schools. Resident Directors and Associate Resident Directors gain intensive experience working with undergraduates in administrative, counseling, leadership, and educational capacities- more than almost any other graduate assistant opportunity. 

All members of the staff have fully-furnished apartments with a computer, printer, Internet connection, cable television, and phone service. Compensation also includes a stipend and a meal plan. See the job descriptions for more detail.

How do you apply?
Look for openings at Fordham's Human Resources page.  Send a current resume and a cover letter explaining your interest in the position and in the field of Student Affairs and Residential Life to the email address requested in the posting.
