UCL Student Support and Wellbeing is recruiting for full-time UCL postgraduate students to work as Student Residence Advisers (SRAs) in halls of residence for the fixed term contract period 1 September 2022 – 31 July 2023.


Student Residence Advisers are responsible for helping students settle into life at UCL and proactively building the hall community by running events and activities. SRAs offer peer-to-peer pastoral support and signpost residents to wider UCL services. SRAs work on a rota basis during weekday evenings and throughout weekends, bank holidays and periods of UCL closure, when site offices are closed.
