Your ResLife Ambassadors are on hand to help make sure that you have the best experience whilst living in our accommodation.

Introducing your ResLife Ambassadors

Moving away from home and into accommodation at university is an exciting time which can come with new challenges. Settling into your new home and building relationships are common situations that everyone has to navigate when they arrive. That's why our ResLife Ambassadors are here to help and make sure you have the best experience living here.

Your ResLife Ambassadors are all current students who have previously lived in university accommodation. They have experience of what is it like to be living away from home and have plenty of knowledge on the services and support available to you.

We understand the importance of speaking with someone who shares your (or similar) background so we aim to have ResLife Ambassadors from different communities to encourage a supportive and welcoming place.
