The University Village is staffed with two full time professional staff members that handle the day to day operations of the building. Learn more about them below.

Area Director - Amber Galusha-Patel

Office Supervisor - Christine Stroface

Hello, my name is Christine Stroface. I am the Office Supervisor at University Village. This is my seventh year working with the University of Miami and my third year at University Village. I am a Miami native and New Yorker at heart coming from a large Italian-American family. I am happy to be raising my teenage son in Miami as we are avid Canes fans. Growing up, I have great memories of my family going the Orange Bowl to watch the UM football games, which is why I have continued that tradition with my son. If I can assist you in any way, please stop by the University Village office and let me know. I would like to welcome you to the University Village Family, your home away from home. It’s all about “the U”!!!
