The team

Halls Life Coordinator

Joshua Gumbley

Welcome to Uni Hall. I spent five years in St Andrews reading for undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in History and International Relations before leaving to work in the public and charity sectors. I was delighted to return to St Andrews in August 2021 to take on this role. 

The wardennial team are here to support you during your time in hall and at the University. We are very much part of the hall community. You should always feel welcome to come and chat with us about anything that’s on your mind, about challenges you are facing, or to let us know about anything you think we might be able to do better. 

Deputy Warden

Ariane Hine

Hey, I'm Ariane. I can often be found at the gym and love a good chat about all things health and fitness. My favourite event in hall is coffee and cake, but high table is a close second.

Assistant wardens

Cailean Wilkinson

In my spare time I love playing board games or, on the few days a year I am able, skiing over at Glencoe. My favourite events here at Uni Hall are our high tables a couple of times a semester, closely followed by a chill coffee and cake.

Carolina Zaccato

Hi there! I'm Carolina (but you can call me Caro). In my spare time you can find me taking long walks along West Sands or exploring some of the coastal villages that Fife has to offer. I love living at Uni Hall and the wide range of events we organise, particularly our high table dinners. I'm always up for a chat, so if you see me at the office just come and say hi!

Francesca Salibra

Hi all. I'm Francesca. My favorite thing to do in town is walking down the Lade Braes and, on dry days, sitting down to read in Hallow Hill.

Maria Del Pilar Duque Paez

Hi, I'm Pilar. You might see me in Topping's looking for books or at one of the coffee shops in town having some coffee. Something I love at University Hall is the wide range of events, but my personal favorite will have to be coffee and cake.
