Residence life

Welcome to your residence life community

Starting at university can mean living independently for the first time which can be daunting for some. The residence life team is here to provide support and to help you settle into your new home. Moving into University-managed halls of residence is the beginning of something very exciting. You'll become part of a much bigger, supportive, fun and vibrant community of like-minded people.

To help you settle in we have put together an exclusive residence life events programme for students staying within university managed halls. We provide a wide range of events, competitions and fundraiser, and aim to cater to everyone's taste and hobbies. Previous events include Cinema trips, game nights, inter hall competitions, sporting events and more. These events are a fantastic way for you to meet new people and to try new experiences.

All events are hosted by our friendly team of hall volunteers, so be sure to check out our residence life events page or your exclusive halls of residence Facebook groups to find out more.

Accommodation team

The residence life, team are here to ensure that students make the most of their time in University managed halls of residence, while feeling safe and supported.

Our team of hall officers offer daily 'drop ins' which provide students with the opportunity to ask questions and discuss any concerns or queries regarding their accommodation. These drop ins take place at both hall receptions and in the Student Hub based in the library and require no prior booking. Alternatively, if students would prefer to discuss their concerns in private, they can book a private meeting with our hall officers online via the accommodation portal.
