Residential Life

Lillian Penson Hall: Meet your warden and their team

By bzbeth 23 Sep 2019

Welcome to Lillian Penson Hall

We hope that you settle in and have the best experience whilst studying and living here.

To make sure we are all on the same page, please have a look at our Accommodation Handbook´╗┐; you will find it in the Useful Documents section on our official halls website. There is also a copy of the licence agreement which you signed when you accepted your offer of accommodation.

Duty RA

To make sure you have the BEST time whilst living in halls, your accommodation has its dedicated Warden's Team: Resident Advisors, Senior Resident Advisor and Warden. 

Your first point of contact is your Duty Resident Advisor (Duty RA). They are on duty every weekday (Monday - Friday) from 6 pm until 8 am the following morning and all day (24 hours) at weekends and bank holidays. They can get in touch with the Warden at all times during an emergency or where a situation requires escalation. 

If you need to contact Duty RA, please talk to the reception - just pop in downstairs or give them a call, their number can be found on the official Lillian Penson Hall website´╗┐´╗┐ right next to the location map.

If you need to talk to someone during the day, the Hall Management team is available during office hours.

Resident and Senior Resident Advisors

The team supports the Warden and they are all students living in the hall so you should see them around. One of the team members will always be on duty (please see Duty RA section). The whole team goes through extensive training at the beginning of the academic year to make sure they can help you when you need it the most, for example, they are trained in First Aid as well as Mental Health First Aid. Please, come and talk to any member of the team whenever you feel like you need some extra support or if you just feel like having a bit of a chat - we're always here for you!

Your Lillian Penson Hall warden is Derrick Chong

The Warden works full-time at RHUL as a Senior Lecturer and he is available in hall on a part-time basis, usually in the evenings and at weekends. You can book an appointment to meet with the Warden by email (derrick.chong@london.ac.uk).
