There are 12 professional staff members, known as Resident
Directors, and 26 student staff members, called Community Mentors and Community
Resident Directors (RD)
are live-in staff members. They go through ongoing training to help students
address issues such as: adjustment to college, roommate conflict, interpersonal
conflict, academic concerns, etc.
Community Advisors (CA) are student staff members. They are
the student resource in the building. They work with students on roommate
issues, create programs to help connect students in the residence halls, and
act as an overall resource in the buildings to students. They are the first
line for students when they have questions about living on campus, or other
questions about Dean.
First year students and returning students:
-First year students are placed by the Office of Residence Life based on their responses to questions on the online
Housing and Dining Application. The application must be completed online. It consists of a few questions about major, sleep and study habits, likes and
dislikes. The Office of Residence Life uses this information to place roommates
together. All placements are made after payment in full has been received. Roommate
requests are accepted, but cannot be guaranteed. Learn how to complete your housing and dining form.
-Returning students participate in Housing Selection in April. They have the opportunity to form roommate groups and select their rooms for the fall. Housing Selection is an online process. Students should watch this video and check Today@Dean to learn more about the process.
The Office of Residence Life is happy to work with any student who may require an accommodation. These accommodations can be based on a physical, emotional or learning need. The Office of Residence Life has a close relationship with the Disability Support Office and requires certain paperwork to be filled out and completed.
Please complete the Accommodations & Services Intake Form as well as the Residence Life Accommodations Form. The Office of Residence Life and Office of Disability Support Services then work together on the most appropriate placement.
When students deposit to attend Dean
they pay a deposit to the College based on whether they will be a resident
student or a commuter student. Once you have deposited with the College you
will receive your student email and password, along with instructions on how to
log onto the housing and dining application.
Most first year students will live
in one of our first year halls. Click here to learn more about them.
