Student Affairs

The Division of Student Affairs is comprised of offices that work together to promote student learning, growth, and success, in and out of the classroom. When you meet someone who works in university advising, student leadership and engagement, the residence halls, campus recreation, student counseling, the Center for Career Design and Development, or any other office in Student Affairs, you will find a professional staff member whose primary aim is to help you develop, refine and meet your goals at Hofstra.

We have assembled many resources to create an active and engaging campus and a safe living and learning environment. The members of Student Affairs will be your guides as you explore your opportunities at Hofstra and prepare for your future. We are excited to help you with that journey.

Be sure to check out the Division of Student Affairs Values, Mission, and Vision and how we are organized in the DSA.

Hofstra was announced as a member of the First-Gen Forward cohort, a distinction awarded by the Center for First-Generation Student Success an initiative of the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators. Through a series of events, workshops, and social gatherings, Hofstra's First Generation committee has worked hard to make certain that all members of the Hofstra Pride feel welcomed.
