Housing and Residence Life strives to make every resident feel like their hall is a home away from home. In an effort to make the halls fun and inviting, the professional staff - Residence Hall Directors (RHD's) - and the live-in student staff - Community Development Advisors (CDA's) - work together to make your stay a pleasant experience.
Our focus is on hall events that appeal to the needs of each community of residents, while at the same time creating a space where residents have the opportunity to meet other residents from a different university partner or Academic Bridge Program. When holding hall events we make use of the physical spaces and resources within Hamad Bin Khalifa University, but we also take residents off campus so that they may form a connection with the wider community of Doha.
Residents are invited to take an active role in the planning of events that appeal to them and their particular community. The RHDs, CDAs, and Residence Hall Council (RHC) embrace resident input to improve their experience in the residence halls. If you have something that you would like to do as a community of resident students, come to your local staff member with the idea and we'll work with you to make it happen!
