Resident Assistants

Resident Assistants, commonly known as RAs, are senior students who live within the residences and are here to help with advice, welfare support, information and disciplinary matters. Each RA receives a scholarship that reduces their rent by 55%.

RAs are there to address issues students may be experiencing such as noise disturbance, neighb​our problems, kitchen cleaning problems or if they just need someone to talk to. They are students themselves and have been in a similar position to new residents. All members of the RA team are trained to handle and appropriately advise students on a wide range of issues so they can be approached by residents for any advice or support.

RAs are also trained to deal with fire safety and other emergency issues that may occur outside of regular office hours.

Resident Assistants applications for 2019/20 are now closed. Please check back in March 2020 for the next opportunity to apply.
