Support in Halls

By sophiebk 20 Aug 2020

In a typical year, we have a variety of full-time and part-time members of staff who are dedicated to helping you enjoy your time in University accommodation.

Student welfare and discipline within the Halls are the responsibility of our Hall Wardens, assisted by the Residential Adviser team. Our wardens are all senior members of staff at the University who live in Halls to ensure you all get the support and assistance you need while you're living with us. 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 (RAs)
Each Hall has a teams of Postgraduate and Mature students who live in Halls to provide support, guidance and vital contact out of normal office hours. Our RA team provides an on-call emergency service 8pm - 8am Monday-Friday and 6pm - 9am Saturday-Sunday. The contact number for the Residential Adviser team can be found on the notice boards in all kitchens and lift lobby’s. RAs are there to support you so we hope all students will build a good relationship with their adviser. You can see the contact information to contact a Residential Adviser here.

Reception – Daytime and Evening
The Reception Staff are your first port of call for any enquiries around Halls and are there to help 24/7. You can always approach and talk to them at the desk. If you live in Melville or Tudor your Hall Reception is at Vine Court.

Halls Managers
Each Hall has a Manager and Deputy Manager who is responsible for the day-to-day running of the buildings and the facilities. As with all staff in Halls, the Halls Managers and Deputy Halls Managers are there to support you in whatever way you need should you not be able to access your RA or Warden. You can find out more about our Halls Managers here.
