Graduate Resident Fellows (GRFs) are graduate or professional students who live-in and work directly with undergraduates in the House System. The GRFs are an incredibly dynamic group of students who value the learning that occurs outside of a classroom and take on a leadership role within the house community.

The GRF's role is demanding and rewarding. GRFs share on-call responsibilities for their house and are trained to support residents' well-being. Looked to as the community leader, GRFs will partner with their Assistant Dean to address student concerns and enforce community standards. As an intellectual role model and mature community member, the GRF can also expect to serve as a friend and mentor to residents.
A very competitive GRF selection process occurs annually to fill vacancies across the House System. Information sessions are held in late fall and early spring semester. Applications are due early in the spring semester. You are encouraged to reach out to a current GRF to learn more about the position.
