The team

Halls Life Coordinator

Cassice Last

My name is Cassice and I am the Halls Life Coordinator of Sallies. The team consists of myself and four ‌assistant wardens. We all live in Sallies and are here to provide you with pastoral care, guidance and support, and to help you settle in and make the most of your time in St Andrews. We work with the Hall Committee, made up of students elected from among the hall residents, to foster community spirit and to provide a calendar of events. If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to get in touch. 

As St Andrews students, you are joining an institution of research and academic excellence and a diverse and vibrant community of people and scholars. I encourage you to make the most of all the opportunities that await you here, get to know your fellow Salvatorians, and become actively involved in Sallies Hall life. 

Assistant wardens

Basil Bowdler

I’m a PhD student in the School of History researching public diplomacy in early modern Europe. As a lifelong Londoner, I was excited to move to Scotland, although less excited about the cold. I enjoy cooking, reading, listening to music, and going to the cinema. And I’m always up for a chat. My top St Andrews wellbeing tip is to walk along The Scores. It never fails to cheer me up. 

Carey Li

Hi I'm Carey, a PhD student in Math, with a passion for unravelling equations and composing melodies on the piano. If you see me around, please feel free to say hi. I look forward to meeting you all.

Matilde Zoppi

I work for the Libraries and Museums Public Engagement team. I’m from Italy but have lived in Scotland for five years while studying my undergraduate and Masters degrees. I love to chat about pop culture, very old things, cats, and why ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ is the best film that has ever been produced. When I am not in a museum, my favourite place in St Andrews is the cheesemonger on South Street.

Sarah Coller

Hi, I'm Sarah. My top tip for wellbeing at university is to show compassion for yourself and for others.
