Wardennial Services Introduction

Wardennial Passport Within each hall of residence there is a wardennial team, consisting of a Warden and a team of Assistant Wardens (in David Russell Apartments and Fife Park and in Agnes Blackadder Hall this team includes 2 Deputy Wardens). The wardennial team is tasked with working with residents, the hall committee and the residential services team to build a strong and supportive community and hall identity. They actively encourage residents to join in and feel part of the hall; working with residents and the Hall Committee to organise events such as game nights, film nights, activities, Balls and trips.

The Warden and Assistant Wardens provide out-of-hours contact and support and links to day-time services to ensure that help is available round-the-clock. They are a first point of contact if a health crisis occurs, if a student is in distress or is experiencing difficulties. Their role is one of a mentor, adviser and supporter for all the residents within the hall.

The Warden and wardennial team are also responsible for student discipline and keeping order in the hall.

Wardens and Assistant Wardens undergo regular training and are qualified to provide first aid.

The wardennial team is on duty and available between 7pm and 8am every weekday (Monday to Friday) and between 2pm and 8am at weekends (Saturday and Sunday). They also provide drop-in sessions in each hall. Each wardennial team has a webpage which contains the times that these drop-in sessions are available and the specific contact details for each Warden.
