Residence Life Team

Our residence life team can offer help and advice

If you're new to living away from home and you're experiencing the ups and downs of sharing a hall or house with other students, the residence life team can offer help and advice.

We support first year students living in halls and in the private accommodation.

You can get help and advice with:

  • health concerns
  • homesickness
  • relationship problems (e.g. with housemates)
  • noisy neighbours

Social events

Come to our social events throughout the year. You'll be able to make friends, get to know your halls neighbours better and most importantly have fun while living away from home.

You'll find events such as film nights, weekly quiz nights, jenga and pizza nights, games nights, concerts, karaoke, art nights and cake decorating at your halls - held online, face to face in halls and outside areas. Welcome events for halls in 2020 include:

To find out more about what's going on, look out for your weekly email from the Res Life team, and on the noticeboards, digital screens, and Facebook groups and Instagram profiles for your hall. And you can check out all Welcome Month events on MyPort.

If you've got any questions, please speak to a member of our residence life team or email the team at res.life@port.ac.uk.

Residence life assistants (RLAs)

You can also speak to a Residence life assistant (RLA). Residence life assistants are fellow students who have been through their first-year in halls. They have the experience to help you with all types of issues.

You will find the RLAs in halls from 6.00pm to 10.00pm, Monday to Friday.
