The Department of Student Housing & Residence Life is seeking a graduate student living in residence who is  interested in participating on the Student Housing Advisory Committee.

The Student Housing Advisory Committee provides students with a forum to voice opinions and ideas for the University of Toronto Mississauga department of Student Housing & Residence Life, and serves to facilitate bi-directional communication between students and housing staff.

Student advisors provide input and feedback on matters pertaining to housing services, programming for students, resources and departmental budget priorities. Areas of interest for which student feedback and discussion is invaluable include:

·    Student needs in various communities, including undergraduate, graduate, bachelor & family communities;

·    Housing policies, services, judiciary structures, and customer service and engagement issues;

·    Budgetary priorities for the department and housing fee consultation;

·    Advocates for positive impact on student behaviour in support of their academic success;

·    Student-focused marketing and communications within housing.

Currently, there is one space on the committee representing the interests of graduate students.  If you are interested in participating, please email me, emma.beamson@utoronto.ca with a short statement outlining your interest and a copy of your availability before Sunday October 16th,11:59 p.m.  We would like to have someone in place by Monday.


Cheers all!
