Every University run Halls of Residence has a Residents’ Association (RA) or Junior Common Room (JCR). All students who live in the hall are members of this group and the membership fee is included in their rent. These fees go into a fund which is used to run socials, trips, events and sporting activities for all residents throughout the year.
A committee of students is elected to put on a range of events, sports and services for students living in their hall, and to represent their fellow residents.
The Students' Union supports the committees in achieving their goals and making halls of residence great places to live through a strong, exciting and supportive community.
