Residential Wardens

Student Services - RW Banner 1

The Residential Wardens are a diverse team of current students, who support those living in University owned and Managed accommodation, as part of the University’s 24/7 support. Students can contact the Residential Warden Team directly, everyday between 17:30-00:00, throughout the entirety of their accommodation contract length. Outside these hours, the Student Support Centre or Security can connect students to the team if needed at any other times.

The types of issues students commonly contact the Residential Warden Team about are communal space issues, interpersonal conflict, homesickness, feeling low, or just generally needing someone to talk to. Residential Wardens can be contacted about any issue a student is facing,  acting as an initial point of contact, to help students know about, and access the support offered across the University and in the wider Lincoln area.

Students can speak to the team about anything that is worrying them by calling 07971 589 326 or sending an email to

Residential Wardens are also available via the digital drop in, every evening between 18:00-00:00, via Facebook messenger. You can find their page by searching for @UoLRW

The team also provides a schedule of events and activities for students to take part in, as well as sharing useful, student centred content,  through their social media channels @UoLRW on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Whilst these are the areas in which we advertise our support, we never turn anyone away! Students outside of these areas can contact us and we will do our best to help, however we cannot offer our full range of services to students outside of the above locations.
