Res Life

Meet Your RA Team

By jhobson 01 Sep 2023

Your Residential Advisers are current students who work as part of the Residence Life Team to help you settle in to accommodation, be a friendly face throughout the year and promote a sense of community. They also organise the social calendar, so make sure you come along to events and get to know the team. They always wear green Residential Adviser hoodies, so they're easy to spot!

Get in touch with the team by emailing, calling 0116 252 2428, dropping us a DM on our Instagram or finding us at one of our events!
