Student Wardens are students just like you who represent and listen to those who live in halls and aim to represent all things student-life related, including:

  • Safety - their number one priority 
  • Community - you're all one big family and in it together, remember
  • Rubbish and recycling - look after the Earth, folks
  • Repairs - duct tape can't fix everything...
  • Campaigns - promoting events so you can have a whale of a time

How do they do all this?

Firstly, they are here for you because they are on the same bumpy boat as you. They listen to what you have to say and share your problems, ideas, and concerns at meetings to work together to come up with the best solution to improve your student experience. It's all reported back to the University and FutureLets who support students to make improvements.

Well, what kind of improvements?
