Accommodation Activities

In our university-managed accommodation, our Residential Wardens will be working hard to develop a sense of community and supporting an engaging university experience through a range of exciting social activites.

These activities are designed to connect students within their apartments and buildings, and establish a sense of belonging, community, and support. These may include a range of 'Warden Challenges' such as photo competitions and social media-based activities, as well as online quizzes and games.

We also aim provide students from across our accommodation with opportunities to interact with others outside of their immediate blocks and form connections and support networks across our one community.
