Elsa, Senior Resident
Senior Residents play an important role developing the communal life in University residences.
In return for subsidised accommodation, they assume pastoral and other responsibilities within the residence. These positions may be of interest to postgraduate students, mature undergraduate students and to members of staff within the University.
The University has over 140 Senior Resident positions at both its owned and managed Residences. Senior Residents are typically graduate students who help to develop and maintain the communal life within a university Residence to ensure an excellent and rounded student experience. They work as part of a team led by a warden and/or deputy warden, and assisted by the residence administrator. The role is voluntary, but accommodation and, in catered halls, meals, are provided at 25% of the normal student rate.
The responsibilities of the role include:
Senior Residents in catered and self-catered halls currently pay reduced accommodation fees. The Senior Resident tenancy normally runs two weeks before the start and two weeks after the end of the accommodation contract.
