If you're a student living in halls, you can access a range of wellbeing support from your Residential Wellbeing Team.
We are here to make you feel welcome and help with the transition to university life. We provide wellbeing support plus community building and social opportunities to enrich your student experience.
We aim to create a safe, supportive and inclusive living environment for you, giving you the best chance to succeed at university. Our team is made up of both staff and student mentors.
The Residential Wellbeing Team run a peer-to-peer project in university halls. Upper year students called Student Residential Advisors (SRAs) live and work in the accommodation and provide support to new residents. The aim of the scheme is to create a friendly, positive and inclusive environment for all students.
We know that it may be easier to talk to a fellow student than a member of staff, so each flat is assigned an SRA. Your SRA will check in with you regularly throughout the year to say hello. They are there to help you settle into your accommodation and life at the university, and to serve as a resource for all sorts of issues.
The SRAs organise and deliver social events where there is an opportunity for you to build genuine friendships and have fun. We hope that you will experience a real sense of belonging and that you will quickly feel at home.
