While you are living in halls of residence you will be supported by the Residential Life Team who are there to support you throughout your time in our halls of residence and make you feel at home. You can talk to the Residential Life Team about any problems that you may have in confidence: from homesickness to noisy neighbours.
In your first week the Residential Life Team can help you to fill out a Community Living Agreement. This allows you and your flatmates to set ground-rules about the way you all live together. For example having friends to visit, noise levels, cleaning the kitchen or how often everyone does the washing up! You will be asked to sign the agreement at the start of the academic year and follow those rules you sign up to.
The residential life team will also conduct hall welcome talks where they will sit down with you and give you useful advice so that you are prepared for the year ahead. This is also an opportunity for you to get to know the team and to ask any questions that you may have.
The team also employs student Residential Life Assistants to work alongside them, offering peer support and guidance to residents living in halls. This role is open to applications from second year students onwards.
