Assistants (OAs) work to create an inclusive on-campus housing environment that
promotes personal development, citizenship, involvement, and leadership through
the practice of Community Immersion.
OAs serve as a resource for students in
their community and as a role model at UNC Chapel Hill. OAs are assigned to
traditional residence halls, suite style complexes, or apartment buildings and
are supervised by the Community Director (CD) and the Community Manager (CM).
Hours of work vary based on the need of the
department and community (ex: Halloween, popular sporting events, inclement
weather, training, opening, closing, staff selection, unforeseen circumstances,
etc.) and includes some evenings and weekends. After providing a
schedule of availability, a supervisor will determine the specific work
schedule. All leave time must be approved by their supervisor. OAs are required to attend all training
activities while employed. OAs are
expected to work all residence hall openings and closings, including Fall
semester, Thanksgiving Break, Winter Semester, Spring Break and Spring
