Residential Life and Housing

Housing Complex Managers

Clark Houses offer Undergraduate and Graduate students the opportunity to live with independance while still enjoying many of the convenient services offered to students living in the residence halls. These ammenities 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 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.
  • Graduate Complex - 906, 914, 926, 930, and 934 Main Street.

"Shelby on Shelby": Hello everyone! My name is Shelby Margolin and I am a graduate student at Clark University. My undergraduate degree from Clark is in International Development and Social Change with a concentration in Holocaust and Genocide studies. I am originally from California and have enjoyed living across the country for the past 4 years, even though I definitely miss the California weather! I have grown to love Worcester, and you can often find me at Elm Park, trying to get tickets to the Hanover, or volunteering at the St. Peters mentoring program or the Donna Kay rest home. On campus I am very involved with the Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, am a Making a Difference Scholar, and am a LEEP Pioneer. Aside from that, I love movies, board games, and hikes, and am always looking for suggestions of new ones to try.

I worked as an RA and a head RA in Dodd prior to becoming an HCM. It is different living apart from residents, but I still try and generally am able to get to know you all. I have weekly office hours in the Residential Life and Housing office on Woodland St. and encourage you all to stop by. I also visit the houses to put up postings and chat if you have some free time. I understand that moving to an on campus house is about establishing independence, and I will make every effort to respect that part of our relationship. I look forward to meeting you and hope that we all have a great year!

"Shalyn on Shalyn": My name is Shalyn, and I am an undergraduate English Major with a Business Management minor. I have lived most of my life near Worcester, and my family currently lives a short drive from campus. I have four siblings, three of which are under the age of five, and one who is a sophomore here at Clark. My family is very important to me, and I love bringing my littlest siblings to visit campus. As for my interests, I am a voracious reader; I love camping, especially up in Maine; I enjoy going for walks at the nearby parks and trails; I really like going to Zumba classes; I knit.

In addition to my work in the past as a Resident Adviser in the 21 and 23 Maywood Houses and in Maywood Street Hall and now as Housing Complex Manager of the North Complex, I also work as an office assistant for the English Department. In my three years at Clark, I have been involved in RHA, Clark Undergraduate Student Council, STIR magazine, and Stitch Club. I am looking forward this year to increasing my responsibilities within Residential Life and Housing and serving as the HCM for the 70 Florence and 112, 114, and 157 Woodland Houses. I encourage you to write me an email any time or drop by during my weekly office hours. Let’s have a great year!

Carson Stevens

"Carson on Carson": I am a graduate student at Clark University. My undergraduate degree is in Global History. My favorite things about Clark are the people and the extra-curriculular activities.  Apart from my work with RLH, the things I am happiest about having experienced while at Clark are volunteering opportunities, and being on several intramural sports teams.  I enjoy most sports, namely basketball, football, and baseball.  I am THE BIGGEST New England Patriots fan I know, and I also LOVE the Celtics and Red Sox.  My hometown, where I've lived all my life and spend most of my summers, is Gloucester, MA.  Gloucester is home of 'The Perfect Storm,' whale-watches, beaches, and the tuna fishing industry as showcased on the 'Wicked Tuna' tv program.  I am a proud New Englander, but actually prefer the weather everywhere else I go.  I'm fortunate to have family and friends all over the place so I have been to over 7 other countries and about 30 other states.
