Vice-warden appointments for UCL student residences 2014-15

25 March 2014

Applications are now open for vice-wardens in UCL Halls of Residence in 2014-15.


As part of the management of its Halls of Residences, UCL employs small teams of vice-wardens on a voluntary basis to work in each hall. 

Vice-wardens are offered a single room, free of charge, and the post holder is expected to reside within that hall. 

The position of vice-warden is open to any graduate student registered at UCL with at least one year remaining on their programme of study. 

Applications will also be accepted from prospective graduate students who have confirmed their offer of admission for 2014-15. Current research students or prospective research students are particularly encouraged to apply.

The main role of a vice-warden is to help promote a good social atmosphere, maintain good order and occasionally provide pastoral and welfare provisions for residents. 

As part of each team, vice-wardens operate on a rota system during the evenings and at weekends, and although the role can occasionally be challenging, it can also be extremely rewarding.

Successful applicants would be expected to demonstrate previous experience of having served in an advisory or supportive role; of being in a position of authority or leadership; and good team working skills. 

If this role is something that may be of interest to students that you know, further information and an application form can be found on UCL's Job Vacancies site. For any further enquiries, please contact Andy Saffery.
