Jobs and Groups

House Management:
The house management untersteht dem Vorstand (Pater-Rupert-Mayer-Heim e.V.) and manages the dorm. The team consists of the Manager, the house team, the superintendent, and the financial team.
Our dorm is partly run by the students themselves, and several residents make up the house management team. Additionally, several jobs are available, which are to be filled exclusively by residents.

Speakers of the house:
Two speakers of the house represent the wishes of the residents and act as a kind of „go-between” for the residents and the house management, should this be necessary. They are elected by the residents at our annual house meeting.

Speakers of the hallways
Every wing of the house elects two speakers of the hallway per semester. These speakers are responsible for helping to solve small issues that may arise within their wing of the dorm, in order to help create harmony in their corridor.

The tutors are responsible for the entertainment and events in the dorm. They organize bar-evenings, bowling evenings, Summerfest and much more. The tutors are elected once a year at our annual house meeting and are financially supported by the house management and the wings of the house..

Beginning in June of 2000, our dorm is wired with a computer network and Internet connection. This network is planned and built from the vision of student residents. This group of students make up the IT team, and are the administrators of the net in our dorm.

There are many other smaller duties and functions to be filled within the dorm. The Copy machine, printer, and flowers must all be tended to, to name a few. The help of all residents helps to create a well-functioning student dorm. Therefore, the fulfillment of at least one job for one semester during the residency of each student is expected.
