   What We Do

Individuals and groups staying in Hunter Hall will be directly connected to a full-time staff member assigned to manage all of your housing needs. Guests will also interact with Summer Housing Assistants, which are student employees specifically trained in providing exceptional customer service to guests.

Summer Housing Assistants (SHAs) work with all guests and summer camp/conference groups. SHAs are responsible for guest and group check-ins and check-outs, assisting with housing concerns and swipe access issues, linen distribution and room setup needs, and 24-hour desk coverage.

If you need assistance or are having swipe access issues, please visit or call our front desk at 281-283-2615 for assistance. In the event of an emergency, please contact our Police Department at 281-283-2222. We are here to assist you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!
