Campus and Community

Apply to become a paid Residential Community Assistant next year

Are you a 3rd or 4th year student (UG or PG) keen to support students and create a sense of community within halls of residences? We're looking for next year's Residential Community Assistants (RCAs) and applications are now open until 26 June. You'll be paid the National Living Wage, gain experience and training in providing pastoral support and improving student experience, and on-campus accommodation will be provided either for the whole year or on a weekly basis if you opt into the on call rota. Find out more and apply.

Moving out at the end of term

As we come to the end of the year, many of you will be moving out of your term time accommodation. The SU has a handy page full of things to remember on the Housing Advice website, including refuse and recycling tips, advice for getting your deposit back and a list of things to clean and sort out before you leave. 

If you're living in Coventry, Kenilworth or Leamington Spa, read advice on how to dispose of waste responsibly in your local area. In Leamington there will be an extra general waste collection on Saturday 2 July - find out which streets will be taking part.

If you're living on campus, you'll be aware of some changes coming to campus to help us prepare for various events happening over the summer. Warwick Accommodation will be in touch if any of these preparations will affect your departure from campus.

RAWKUS is a project that aims to save food surplus from campus kitchens as you move out. Tonnes of food and other items have been saved from ending up in the bin and have been given to local charities and food banks and the next collections are taking place on 2 - 3 July and 30 July. Look out for the team and save food and items you don't need from ending up in the bin. You can also volunteer to be part of the RAWKUS team this July.

Inflatable Obstacle Course - book now for tomorrow, Wednesday and Thursday!

Our Inflatable Obstacle Course is finally here tomorrow! Act fast and book your free place before all the spots go. Play a variety of sports on inflatables with your friends and get those endorphins going! We have a huge Labyrinth Challenge, human football table, inflatable volleyball, and inflatable crazy golf. What more could you need?

Managing Low Mood

This week’s Wellbeing theme is around Managing Low Mood. Our mood can fluctuate, and this is a natural response to difficult circumstances, so prioritising our health is vital; both physically and mentally. Take a look at our self-help pages on how to look after yourself when feeling low. There's a masterclass series which gives more tips and strategies on how to manage your wellbeing. You can also join a Boost Your Mood skills session on Friday 17 June at 11am where you can get tips and strategies. Register by Thursday 16 June for your place.

If you would like to speak to someone at Wellbeing, please access our Wellbeing Portal where you can join a virtual queue for a brief consultation with an adviser, Monday to Friday from 10am to 3pm.
