Wardening Team - Writtle University College

Wardening Team

Wardening Team

We know it can be difficult to make the transition from home to living in halls of residence at university, so if you are experiencing any problems relating to your wellbeing outside of office hours, from needing first aid to having emotional problems, if you are experiencing mental ill-health, or any difficulties with your room mates, you can speak to the Duty Warden. They will offer advice on how best to tackle the situation and signpost you to the services available to you both at College and off-site.

Wardens are:

  • responsible for the wellbeing of all resident students outside of the normal working day
  • on call every evening and all weekend to sensitively handle any emergencies and safeguarding issues
  • here to act as your first port of call for help and support for any matters relating to life in halls and they are in charge of making sure the hall environment is conducive to study and are happy to help

The warden team is made up of staff and senior students. To enquire about becoming part of the wardening team, please ask the human resources department or speak to the Senior Warden. You must be a current student or a member of staff, and you will live on site as part of the role. The role is subject to a rigorous recruitment process which includes an interview and successful applicants will have undergone an enhanced DBS check. Nearly all of the halls of residents have a warden living in the accommodation.
