Student Living Support

There is plenty of support to make your life in University accommodation as comfortable as possible, and help you to make the most of your time at Bath.

Residence Life


Starting life at University can come with new challenges. That's why we’re here to help.

We run a residence life programme to support your transition into University halls, develop a sense of community and help you get the best student experience from your time living with us. Our remit includes social events and activities, welcome into halls, life skills, peer to peer roles (Student Living Assistants), student support and engagement.

Settling into your new home and building relationships are common situations that everyone faces when moving into University accommodation.

Your Student Living Assistants are current students who previously lived in halls and will regularly check in with you and your flatmates. However, you can always schedule a meeting with the team at any time by contacting livingsupport@bath.ac.uk.

Programme of activities


Keep an eye on our activity calendar. This is a great way to meet other students and explore your new home city of Bath. All sessions are open to all residents of University halls. If you have any ideas for activities you would like, please email us and let us know at livingsupport@bath.ac.uk.

“The Student Living Support Team have been fantastic in supporting me over my period of self-isolation and beyond.


Regular calls and check-ins from the friendly team really helped boost morale over this otherwise tough period, and made for a pleasant surprise on multiple occasions. The staff have been great in offering invaluable advice on all manner of topics, spanning from next year’s accommodation arrangements, to ways to stay active over lockdown – as well as lending a much appreciated listening ear!”
