Residential Life and Housing

Housing Complex Managers

Clark Houses offer Undergraduate and Graduate students the opportunity to live with independence while still enjoying many of the convenient services offered to students living in the residence halls. These amenities include individual liability contacts (if a roommate moves out you are not stuck covering their portion of the rent), routine maintenance and cleaning, all-inclusive pricing (heat, electric, cold and hot water, sewer, local phone, cable TV, and wired and wireless internet are all provided by the University as part of the room charge), included laundry, and contract flexibility (you can move to another on-campus room without penalty).

While offering these conveniences, Clark RLH also feels strongly that living in the Clark Houses should reflect in some capacity the off-campus housing experience that most students will experience either during or after their Clark career. As such, Clark Houses are supervised using a property management style approach. Each house is assigned to one of three Housing Complex Managers (HCM). HCMs are seniors or 5th year graduate students with at least two years of Resident Adviser experience. HCMs assist the Clark Houses residents with room condition tracking and inspection, maintenance concerns, information dissemination, opening and closing procedures, and providing opportunity for students to interact socially.

Housing Complex Managers supervise on of the following house complexes:

  • South Complex - 1 & 3 Maywood Place, 13 Beaver Street, 21 & 23 Maywood Street.
  • North Compex - 2 Downing Street, 70 Florence Street, 112 & 114 Woodland Street.
  • Main Complex - 906, 914, 926, 930, and 934 Main Street.

South Complex — HCM Gina Jenkins

Gina Jenkins - Clark University"Gina on Gina": I am currently a graduate student studying Environmental Science and Policy at Clark. I graduated from Clark last year with a Bachelors in Environmental Science and Policy. I studied abroad in Perth, Australia for a semester and loved living so close to the beach. I grew up near Seattle, Washington. I was on the Clark Woman's rowing team for a year and a half during undergrad as well a member Clark University Big Brothers Big Sisters. I am very artistic and love to have time to create art in different mediums. I also enjoying cooking and baking and trying new recipes.

I was a resident advisor at Clark for 2 and a half years, working in Wright Hall and Dodd Hall. I really enjoyed getting to know my residents as well as the other RAs I have worked with during my time working for RLH. My experience as an RA helped prepare me for the HCM position by teaching organization and time management skills as well as learning how to handle a variety of personal and sensitive situations. I am looking forward to working with residents at the 1 and 3 Maywood Place, 21 and 23 Maywood Street, and 13 Beaver Street housing this year.
