Major/Essential Functions:

University Student Housing at Texas Tech University promotes each student’s learning experience by creating safe, supporting living environments for academic and personal success. University Student Housing is committed to the total development of the resident within an inclusive community through student government, programming, residence hall standards, and supportive learning environments in the residence halls.

The Conference Staff is a student staff member who is employed by University Student Housing to assist in the daily management and operation of a Residence Hall/Complex during the summer conference season. As a member of the Residence Life staff, the Conference Staff work with Residence Life Coordinators, Graduate Hall Coordinators/Graduate Assistants, Interns for University Student Housing, Hall Secretaries, the Manager for Conference Services, and the Assistant Directors of Residence Life in creating a positive environment for all campus guests. Many times the Conference Staff is the first contact individuals experience in the residence halls and at Texas Tech University.

Student Staff Training:

All Conference Staff are required to participate in staff training, which is conducted prior to conferences beginning in June. Conference Staff will be asked to work during break periods and provide interim coverage during periods of transition. The specific beginning time and potential holiday coverage times will be determined each year and communicated to the Conference Staff by the Manager for Conference Services.

Outside Involvement:

All Conference Staff in this position will only be allowed to take one class per summer semester. Due to the nature of changing work assignments and a weekly staff meeting, the summer class that is taken may not be on Monday between 1:00-2:30 pm. An off-campus job is permitted as long as it does not conflict with the responsibilities of the Conference Staff position or the dedication rotation. It is expected that the Conference Staff responsibilities take priority over any off-campus job and that the Conference Staff is responsible for resolving any conflicts in the two schedules.

Conference Staff will receive their room and board (when dining halls are in operation) beginning the day prior to the start of Conference Staff training. In addition, staff members receive a stipend each month of $250.00. Conference Staff will reside in a single bedroom within a quad suite. Meal plan and housing amounts are prorated should a staff member resign or be separated.
