Student Assistants

The Resident Hall Managers and Night Support Officers also work alongside a team of Student Assistants to support resident students. The Resident Hall Managers work Monday-Friday 17.00 to 08.45 and Friday 17.00 until Monday 08.45.

Student Assistants (SAs) are available to provide help and information to residential students.  When you arrive in halls your Student Assistant will introduce themselves to you and give you information about how to contact him/her.

Please make an effort to get to know your Student Assistant and attend all meetings arranged.

The main focus of the Student Services Engagement Assistant is to enable on-campus students to find their niche at Edge Hill and feel part of the university community. The role is to foster a supportive and positive living experience for student residents, enabling their development as responsible adults and integration into both the University and the local community.

The SSEA organises events such as film nights, sports activities, trips off campus and live music on campus.

The SSEA is available Monday to Thursday between 14.00 to 19.30 in the Student Information Centre. You can follow the SSEA on
