ResNET employs 50 students across campus dedicated to providing reliable on-site IT support, education and delivering new technologies to the UNC-Chapel Hill residential community. The ResNET staff is committed to enhancing the intellectual environment to support the University’s vision.

Discover what ResNET has to offer – a breadth of leadership and technical opportunities, and a great compensation package. We’ve created a work environment designed to provide our employees the freedom and support they need to achieve great things for their future.

We are hiring staff for fall 22 and spring 23! Find the application at https://myhousing.unc.edu under job application.

We believe that working for ResNET offers many benefits to its student employees. These days, Information Technology is integrated with most households and all successful businesses. ResNET offers student staff the ability to leave the program with a strong knowledge of computing technologies and their uses. In addition to technical support and troubleshooting skills, employees learn many additional skills that translate into any field of work:

  • Customer service
  • Event support
  • Time management
  • Leadership
  • Project implementation
  • Community building

We are committed to rewarding, developing and retaining talent and we’ll share the responsibility for your career development with you. There will always be a range of resources available to you to help you determine and meet your development needs.

Technical Growth

As an RCC, you will be given opportunities to develop your technical skills. These technical skills are essential to any career after college. Here’s a list of just some of the areas of technology that you will be exposed to:

  • Computer operating systems (Windows, Mac)
  • Educational software application
  • Malware removal
  • Printer functionality
  • Multimedia
  • Digital marketing
  • Technical writing
  • Gaming technology
  • Esports

Leadership Opportunities

We promote and encourage the development of leadership skills through the ResNET job experience. As an RCC, you will be given opportunities in many areas to collaborate, research, and learn with staff from ITS, Carolina Housing, The Carolina Gaming Arena, and various student organizations on campus.

Residential Computing Consultants (RCCs) are required to live in specific on-campus ResNET reserved rooms during their tenure. All reserved rooms are air-conditioned.

Placements

ResNET has specific rooms on campus for RCCs to live. Based on population and support needs, RCCs are strategically placed so that the highest level of customer service is provided to the residents. Candidates will be given an opportunity to submit preferences, but they are not guaranteed their top choices.

Candidates who receive an offer have the ability to accept or decline a position before any changes are made to their housing assignment.

Compensation

ResNET RCCs receive a yearly stipend of $7,100 distributed in monthly stipend payments, and the cost of the room will be billed as a double-occupancy room directly on the student account.
Questions on impact to Financial Aid should be directed to the Office of Scholarships and Student Aid. 

 

We only hire new staff in fall semester, with the expectation that most will continue into spring. The limited positions for the summer are filled by returning RCCs only.
