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.  The role of assistant warden is open to staff (minimum 0.5 FTE) and postgraduate research students (excluding MLitt and MRes students).

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