Residential Assistants

Developing a community spirit and making sure that students settle in well to university life is our priority. For this reason, each year we recruit a team of Residential Assistants (RAs) from the student body in our residences who act as liaisons between residents and management.

Position Summary

A Residential Assistant (RA) is responsible for providing leadership and building community spirit amongst the student population in our student residences.

Living in our residences, the role of the RAs is to help fellow students adapt to living in residences and to help build a welcoming, inclusive, vibrant community environment conducive to academic and personal development.

The RA team help out at reception and also run events as part of the social programme in residences. Life in our campus residences is dynamic so RAs must be friendly, flexible, enthusiastic and dedicated in order to respond to changing needs and situations.

Why Get Involved?

RAs get the opportunity to organise lots of events throughout the year for fellow residents, making it a fantastic way to get to know other students. Not only that, but RAs can also benefit from the following:

  • A reduction in accommodation fees
  • Acquisition of important skills for future career goals
  • Rewarding personal and professional growth
  • Experience in working in a diverse and dynamic organisation

How to Apply

Students with a confirmed booking are emailed information on how to apply, in advance of the start of the academic year. Candidates need to go through an application and interview process to be considered.
