Residential Information

There is a choice of living styles. Two wings with each floor comprised of 30 bed-study rooms, and one wing containing 'units' where six bed-study rooms are grouped around a central common room. Bedding is provided and clean linen is supplied each week. The residences have wall-to-wall carpet, and are centrally heated. Bed/study rooms are cleaned weekly.

Assistance with many problems of a practical nature may be obtained from the domestic staff who clean and service the rooms, or from the Porters.

Residential Assistants
John Dumaresq is the Senior Residential Assistant, assisting the Head and coordinator of the team of Residential Assistants who are responsible for the operation of the college after hours. Residential Assistants are appointed to assist residents and act as Duty Resident providing after hours assistance on a rostered basis. They are also in charge of a floor of approximately 30 residents and come to know each resident, acting as a referral point for the many activities available in the College and on campus.
