The Hashinger Hall Post MFA Artist-in-Residence is a live-in role designed to foster daily visibility and informal interaction between students and visual artists. The chosen artist will be expected to pursue their creative practice, facilitate activities to bring art into the daily lives of undergraduate students in the residence hall, and teach one class a semester in the Department of Visual Art.

The artist is provided an apartment located on the first floor of Hashinger Hall. Two studio spaces are provided: one is open to the student community on the main level of Hashinger Hall. The other is a private studio in the Visual Art Department. Hashinger Hall is the residential center for the creative arts. The community is open to all students, but attracts many students who are pursuing studies in the arts. The facilities include a black-box theatre, music practice rooms, a dance studio, a textiles room, a painting studio, a resource library and computer lab, and several small meeting areas.

The students are highly involved in the programmatic aspects of their community including: Spring Arts Week, two annual theatre productions, and frequent open mic nights.
