Student Living Ambassadors
Settling into your new home at University, building relationships, cooking meals and cleaning with your housemates can be daunting, but your Student Living Ambassadors are here to help.
The Student Living Ambassadors are friendly faces to help out with any queries or concerns you may have, as well as running social activities and making sure you're aware of the latest events and updates.
They regularly check-in with you and your flatmates via Microsoft Teams calls. If you need help or advice with life in halls, you can schedule a one-to-one call with a Student Living Ambassador at any time by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
