Pilgrim Residence Life team

The Pilgrim Residence Life team is made up of hall volunteers who are current students who will be living in your halls of residence throughout your first year.

They are on duty from 17:00–23:00 every weekday and 11:00–23:00 Saturday and Sunday. You can contact them via the duty phone number which is written in your Pilgrim hall handbook and displayed on your kitchen notice board. Outside of these hours, the phone number will forward to the University's security team.

They provide a friendly face to new students living in Plymouth, helping you to settle in and to feel part of a thriving community. You may meet them during their duty rounds or at one of the halls of residence events.

Don't be shy to ask them any questions or queries you may have – they are here to help and support you.
