HOUSING LAUNCHES VIDEO SERIES TO HELP INCOMING STUDENTS
Incoming residents now
have an interactive tool to help answer their frequently asked
questions. Residential Life & Housing launched a series of
How-To videos to assist students and their parents as they
prepare for the academic year and become a UH resident.
Teeba Rose, Marketing Manager for Residential Life and Housing,
said they noticed many parents and students were approaching
them during new student orientations and other marketing events
with the same questions that, although may not directly involve
RLH, would factor into the student’s decision to live on campus.
“We also noticed that students needed more assistance with
understanding payment dates and how to check their myUH account
to verify their contact information,” Rose explained.
RLH’s How-To series of videos will provide parents and students
with an interactive option for getting answers to some of the
most commonly asked questions. The need-to-know information
covered in the videos may cover topics students and parents have
not yet anticipated but will soon encounter. Although all the
information is provided in written form on the UH website, the
videos will give students another tool to better understand
“By watching our How-To videos, students will be able to better
understand their payment and financial aid options, know where
all of their resources are and how to access them, understand
what most students tend to miss and get a clear understanding of
the processes for both,” Rose said.
Included in the series are videos to explain payment plan
options including setting up a payment plan, things students
commonly overlook and resources for Student Financial Services.
Another series of videos cover financial aid questions such as
how to receive financial aid, overlooked items and financial aid
resources. RLH also put together a video for residents to assist
them in submitting a facilities service request for maintenance
issues in their residence halls. To view the How-To video

The Housing team is currently developing a How-To video on
signing up for housing. If students would like to see other
videos added to the series, please send an email to
