Welcome to College and Community Life

Our team of College and Community Life Officers are here to provide friendly, informal advice, support you with disputes in your accommodation and make referrals to specialist university and local support services.

We work with a group of student Residential Life Assistants to organise events, create opportunities to meet new people and connect you with your community in your residences.
