Wardens and support

Your residential experience is supported by a wardennial team who are your key contacts within the residence, and who act as mentors and advisers, together with the University’s wider advice and support network.

The wardennial team consists of a warden and a number of assistant wardens. The wardennial team works with residents, the hall committee and the residential services team to build a strong and supportive community and hall identity.

They are also responsible for student conduct and keeping order in the hall, and work alongside the residence management team who look after the fabric and furnishings of the residence and also ensure the smooth running of the cleaning service.

Wardennial support

The wardennial team provides out-of-hours contact and support, as well as links to daytime services to ensure that help is available at all hours of the day. They are a first point of call if a health crisis occurs, or if you have a personal problem.

Wardens and assistant wardens undergo regular training and are qualified to provide basic first aid.

The wardennial team is on duty  between 7pm and 8am every weekday (Monday to Friday) and between 2pm and 8am at weekends (Saturday and Sunday). They also provide drop-in sessions in each hall. The times for drop-in sessions and contact details for each warden will be given to you in your residence information pack when you arrive at your hall.
