Senior residents live in specific accommodation in a residence. They support the educational development and social and cultural life of the student community and offer general pastoral care to an allocated group of students.  Take a look at some working examples of a senior resident's role (PDF, 77kB).

Senior residents must be resident in their residence during term time and for any period of duty during the Christmas and Easter vacations. Each residence will have its own duty rota. This ensures someone is always available to respond to emergencies or any matter that needs immediate attention.

Senior residents for undergraduates will have three options over the summer:

  • Move out of their accommodation.
  • Remain in their accommodation and pay full rent.
  • Remain in their accommodation and retain the 75% discount on their rent in return for voluntary summer duties (PDF, 319KB)

All senior residents are required to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.

You should read the senior resident role description (PDF, 222kB). We recommend you read this carefully before applying for a role.
