Each SA has their own Facebook page which is regularly updated with information about the various events and activities taking place throughout the University as well as important communications from the Accommodation team.

When you arrive in halls you will be introduced to your SA and given information about how to contact him or her. Please make an effort to get to know your SA and attend all meetings arranged.
