The Office of Residence Life at Humboldt State University would like to thank you for your interest in our professional full time positions.  This website is designed to provide all of the information you need to fully understand the positions, department and local area.

Humboldt State is located in one of the healthiest climates on Earth, 270 miles north of San Francisco and 90 miles south of Oregon. Our scenic campus adjoins the Pacific and the Redwood Coast. The region is a paradise of teeming wildlife, diverse terrain, various climates, pristine marshes, sheltered harbors, ancient redwoods, magnificent parks, light traffic, short commutes, phenomenally clean air and water, and charming residential life.

Overcrowding and commercialism are minimal. Bicycles and farmers markets are welcome. Arcata has plenty of coffee houses (many offer live music), delectable food at locally-owned restaurants, specialty boutiques, and outstanding independent bookstores.

Humboldt State unites challenging intellectual life with astounding recreational pursuits. The diversity of climate and geography is nearly limitless. In the space of one day, for example, you can both surf and snowboard. For many prospective students, the combination of an innovative educational life and one of the planet's most beautiful natural settings is irresistible.
