Meet your 2023-24 ResLife Team. Lead by Ewen (front row) be sure to keep an eye out to say hello and join in with the events your student ResLife Ambassadors have planned this year.

ResLife Ambassadors (RLAs) are the heart of our Residential Life Team (ResLife for short) at Kent and are there to help you enjoy your experience of living in accommodation at Kent, and can signpost you to support and advice.

ResLife are here to help students living on campus make the most of their time living with us, from support with settling in, to getting stuck in with lots of fun events with other residents on campus. Our ResLife Ambassadors help shape your residential community into a fun, welcoming and active one that you feel proud to be a part of, where every student is welcome no matter what their background. 

Each College and their associated accommodation buildings have dedicated ResLife Ambassadors focussing on their accommodation's community, events and experience in addition to cross and multi college events. You can find your College’s ResLife Ambassadors below.
