  • What does a Residential Adviser do?

    The Residential Advisers, or RA's are selected for their knowledge of problems faced by resident students and their ability to assist. RA's are the conduit between the residents and the management of the Halls of Residence.

    Each RA has between 24 and 48 residents in their area. Regular meetings and functions are held throughout the year, there is always something going on!

  • How can they help me?

    RA's have all been first-year students at some stage and have a full appreciation of how new students feel and the apprehension some first years may have. RA's are the people you go to if you have a problem of any type, whether it is to do with your studies, the residences or some other issue in your life that you need assistance with. RA's are not counsellors, but they are trained in knowing what service is best to refer you to, they are there to help.

    There are RA's at each campus, additionally there are Head residents who supervise the RA's. There are also two Managers, Residential Operations, who are full-time professionals and manage the scheme at each major campus. The Managers are supported by four full-time Residential Operations Coordinators (located on all campuses).
