Carleen Turner

Secretary for Housing and Residential Life

Clark Hall


Laugh hard. Run fast. Be kind.

Hiya, I'm Carleen, and I'm the Secretary of Housing and Residential Life. A large portion of my job entails keeping track of the paperwork that comes from housing assignments, room changes, housing billing, as well as answering emails and phone calls and general organization of the Housing Office. Before this job I was an overnights desk clerk at Vanderburgh Hall and then both overnight and daytime desk clerk at Clark Hall at various times, so I have spent a decade or so working for VU Housing. I enjoy interacting with the students and watching them settle into college life away from their homes. Outside of work, I like to travel, I often find myself paralyzed with indecision in streaming service menus, and I enjoy making people laugh. I love cats and dogs equally, I tend to like any media with "Star" in the title (as well as anything about cars, cowboys, or superheroes), and I believe it's almost impossible in this day and age to feel well rested.
