Housing Advisors (HAs) 

Housing Advisors are full-time CMTN students whose primary responsibility is to make sure that each and every person in the community has a positive housing experience. They are trained to facilitate events and activities to help you meet new people and to build a strong community.  

There is one advisor assigned to each wing. Your HA should be the first person you talk to if you have questions, comments, or concerns. 

Housing Advisor applications are open for 2024! Click here to find out more.
