Settling in and support in residences

Our Residence Life Team are dedicated to enhancing your student experience, helping to create a community within residences where you feel a sense of belonging and inclusion.

Working in partnership with Student Support and Wellbeing, Residences Management and your Students’ Union the team brings a supportive, fun and friendly community to University accommodation with an exciting online calendar of social events, drop-in sessions and helpful workshops throughout the year, including:

  • global holiday celebrations including Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Chinese New Year
  • life skills workshops including how to cook, budget and live communally
  • online drop-ins across the halls for peer support, advice and a friendly cup of tea
  • opportunities to develop your personal passions with practical skills, lessons and training.

Your student Residence Life Assistants are on hand with a listening ear, encouraging you to share your experiences and make use of the quality support services available to help you make the most of your student life and achieve your personal goals and aspirations.
