Assistant warden role

The University of St Andrews is proud to provide a highly regarded, world class wardennial service as a core offering to students living within University residences. The service is an essential element of the student experience at St Andrews and the wardennial team plays a major role in defining student life in each residence. The role of assistant warden is challenging but rewarding. As an assistant warden you will live as part of the residence community and help develop a strong and positive residence identity, while advising and guiding students as they settle into University life.  Assistant Wardens are required to hold another substantive role elsewhere in the University, as a staff member or PhD student, and will not be able to continue as an assistant warden should the substantive role come to an end.

Details of the University’s residences can be found here: University residences
