Office of Housing & Residence Life Staff

Every facility is served by a team of student advisors and their supervisor, a Hall Director. At Ferris State University, Hall Directors are professional staff with experience and/or education in Student Affairs, Counseling, Administration, Education, or a related field. All current Hall Directors have relevant degrees and/or previous residence hall supervision.

Your Hall Director is a person who can help you with many of your problems, or knows who can help here on campus. Turn to your floor's resident advisor (RA) or your Hall Director when you need any kind of help.
