TUJ looks for new Dorm Managers for its Undergraduate Programs

TUJ is looking for new Dorm Managers for two of its housing facilities based in Jiyuugaoka (Meguro Ward) and Takadanobaba (Shinjuku Ward).

The Dorm Manager is the university's primary representative at student housing, and serves as a liaison between students, facility owners, and university administrators. Specific duties at the dorm include monitoring student behavior, student check-in & check-out at the beginning and end of each semester, and enforcing the University's Code of Conduct.

Although permitted to work another job, the Dorm Manager is expected to remain at the housing facility during evenings and on weekends. The Dorm Manager is also expected to organize his or her schedule around the university semester schedule.

There is no salary, but the Dorm Managers will receive free-housing at a university housing facility for a period of at least 2 years.

Applicants should be proficient in English and Japanese and be flexible enough to move to other university dorm facilities as the need arises.
