19 May 2023

UCL Student Support and Wellbeing is recruiting for full-time UCL postgraduate students to work as Student Residence Advisers (SRAs) in halls of residence from 1 September 2023 to 30 June 2024. Find out more about applying here!


Student Residence Advisers are responsible for helping students settle into life at UCL and proactively building the hall community by running events and activities.

They offer peer-to-peer pastoral support, signpost residents to wider UCL services, and work on a rota basis during weekday evenings and throughout weekends, bank holidays and periods of UCL closure, when site offices are closed.

As an SRA, you would be performing community-building activities and providing proactive wellbeing support. SRAs are allocated to, and are expected to reside within, one of UCL's halls of residence; they're offered single rooms free of charge for this purpose.

Successful candidates will: 

  • be postgraduate students registered full-time at UCL, with at least one year of studies remaining;
  • have experience of working as part of a team, showing ability to seek advice from others when needed; and
  • have previous experience of working in a role involving pastoral care, or an advisory or supportive role.
