The Warden’s Team is here to be your first point of contact if you have any questions about the hall, university life, if you’re struggling with coursework or if you would simply like to talk to someone about anything else.
Remember that RAs have gone through the experience of transitioning between home and university life so they are well placed to offer you their perspective on how to deal with the most common problems and can share their journey with you. The same relates to time management and exam stress – it’s good to talk about it with someone who knows what you’re experiencing because they have gone through it themselves, they may also give you some tips and just take your mind off it for a bit.
Living in halls is a great experience, but there may be times when you don’t get along with your neighbour or you’re bothered by noise – the RAs are here to make sure that people stick to the rules and they can help to manage situations of conflict.
If you experience more serious difficulties, the RAs can advise you on where you can get professional help. We are not counsellors, but there are resources that you can use during your time at uni and your RA will be happy to let you know what they are, whether these are Support Services at your university or various helplines, GP or the NHS.
