Support in halls

Support in halls

Within all of our halls of residence, we feel that looking after our student's safety and well-being is a crucial part of a positive student experience.

Student welfare within the halls are the responsibility of our Hall Wardens, assisted by Senior Residential Advisers and the wider Residential Adviser team.


Our Wardens are all senior members of staff who live in our halls of residence, ensuring that all of our students get the support and assistance they need throughout their time in University accommodation.

The team are there to help you with any personal problems and aim to assist students by being pastoral leaders. You will usually meet with your Warden at the welcome events during the first few days of term. It's very important that you attend these events as there will be information specific to your hall of residence. Our Wardens and their Residential Adviser Teams rely on your help and consideration to maintain a community and environment in which all residents can study, sleep, relax and enjoy themselves safely.

Residential Advisers

Upon arrival to halls, our Residential Advisers make themselves known to all students and establish an approachable point of contact for enquiries made out of normal office hours, i.e. in the evening or late at night.

As well as providing pastoral support to our residents, your Residential Advisers also work with the Halls Life Team to help create events and activities throughout the year to ensure there is always something for you to get involved with!
