Hall Staff | University of Portland

Hall Staff

The University lives out its mission of teaching and learning, faith and formation, service and leadership, nowhere better than in its residence halls. It is in these communities that the residence life hall staff promotes mutual respect, faith development, and service to fellow hall members and the University community at large.

We hire live-in professional and student staff to invest in the lives of our residents educationally and spiritually and lead our hall communities through a ministry of presence and role modeling. Additionally, a number of Holy Cross priests and brothers employed on campus live within our halls as "pastoral residents," providing spiritual guidance for our students and celebrating a weekly Mass in the hall chapel.
