"My year as an Residents' Assistant at Alexandra Works has been at times challenging, but extremely rewarding!  It is great being able to get to know everyone in the hall, and to really feel like you’re making a difference to their first-year experience.  The location is great as it’s easy enough to walk into lectures and you’re on the main bus route too.  Alexandra Works has a great vibe and I've really enjoyed being part of it."  Alexandra Works Residents’ Assistant.
