Living with us is so much more than somewhere to sleep.
It's somewhere to thrive. Where student wellbeing is at the heart...
Our student communities are developed on key principles:
We promote health and wellbeing
We welcome and celebrate diversity
We learn from our residents and invite their contribution
We respect and support our residents and the local community
We design residences that promote a community spirit
We always look for ways to be and do better
We have fun (lots and lots of fun)
Wellbeing - "The state of feeling healthy and happy"
We're on a mission to provide a student living experience in which every resident belongs to a community that facilitates their ability to thrive.
We have scoured the globe (literally) to understand what areas students often find challenging. Our research has indicated 9 common areas and challenges that students globally have to face. Meaning that wherever you come from and wherever you study, you need a student experience that is supportive and strives to enhance your university career.
The 9 areas of wellbeing...
We explore each of the wellbeing areas through in-residence activities, tours & excursions, and information, advice & guidance. We also develop partnerships with key University departments and well as local services, charities and businesses to provide further expertise and knowledge for our residents.Find my room
Our residential teams genuinely care about their student communities. Whilst they are not trained counsellors, they are great at listening (and making tea!) and taking the time to get to know their students. Together you'll create a thriving residential community.
We believe that having students as part of our residential team is key to creating awesome residential communities. That is why we employ students as Resident Assistants; a paid, part-time role that fits around your studies. You'd be responsible for:
You'd be provided with a full induction and training programme as well as ongoing development opportunities. Many of our RAs stay with us for the duration of their University career and some even become full-time employees upon graduation.
If you don’t become a Resident Assistant, there are many other ways that you can contribute to the residential community. Several of our residences have elected student councils, peer-support programmes, out of hours and office support roles, as well as move-in, arrivals and welcome positions open to residents. If you would like to find out how you can apply for a community leadership role in your residence, please contact the residence directly. You are welcome to do this before you move-in!
