Resident Advisors 2024/25 academic year

The University has opened up the applications for Resident Advisors across the Intercollegiate Halls of Residence for the 2024/25 academic year.

The Role

As a Resident Advisor (RA), you will be in a position to build the community in your hall and positively influence the lives of your fellow students. The primary goal of the RA is to support the Warden in the development of an environment that is conducive to the academic and personal growth of all. Resident Advisors assist the Warden in promoting residents’ personal and social welfare, dealing with disciplinary issues, and encouraging a supportive and harmonious living environment. Each night and all day at weekends and bank holidays (365 days a year) one Resident Advisor is ‘on duty’, responding to and managing resident-related concerns and emergencies. Apart from being the first point of contact while on duty, Resident Advisors organise a calendar of community building events that will enhance resident’s living experience in the hall and will enable them to learn new skills and form friendships.

Accommodation Arrangements 

Successful applicants will be offered a standard single room in the Hall that they are appointed with an 80% rebate of the 2024/25 charges, subject to the standard Licence Agreement applicable to all student residents. Resident Advisors may have the opportunity to upgrade their accommodation, at the Warden’s discretion, and will be charged the difference in fees alongside the 20% charge for their accommodation. The number of rooms available for upgrade are limited.

This is a compulsory live-in appointment.

A detailed recruitment pack to support you with your application can be found here.
