Your Resident Life Assistants are a friendly bunch and you’ll find them in all campuses (known as Welfare wardens at the Bay Campus). They are here to listen to your concerns, offer advice and point you in the right direction.
What do the Resident Life Assistants do?
- Help with settling in
- Discussing issues with housemates
- Having an informal chat about worries or concerns
- Providing a sympathetic ear to personal matters
- Offering general advice from an impartial point of view
- Directing you to where you can get help from other departments
“Come and pop in for a chat” says Resident Life Assistant, Hannah. Hannah loves supporting students and seeing students call in. The team are always glad to see you and if you see one Resident Life Assistant once, you can speak to another or the same Assistant the next time and the matters will be picked up exactly where they left off.
Tips for you from our Resident Life Assistant team
Crucially, don’t let things build up – if you have niggles among flatmates – get it sorted straight away by chatting to the Resident Life Assistant team – it’ll be much easier to sort out like that.
“Don’t forget a tin opener” says RLA Richie in a friendly tone “and a cork screw!” adds Steve. Steve Jones has been a well-known and established friendly face on campus and as he started at the University as a student, he knows exactly what it’s like. You can pop in for a chat, even if you are not living on campus.
This friendly bunch are looking forward to meeting you.
