Here For You At Halls

By CGordon 23 Aug 2021

Are you staying at one of our residences? Your site and Living Support Teams are here for you.

Your Living Support Assistants (LSAs) are here to help if you need them.

They are current University of Glasgow students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, who live on-site and provide out of hours advice and support to residents. They are fully trained to help in a wealth of scenarios including: 

  • Settling into university life, getting to know your halls and the local area, and home sickness.
  • Health concerns, First Aid, Mental Health First aid, and accessing medical help.
  • Emotional support, course worries, exam stress, and signposting to university services.
  • Noisy neighbours, getting along with flatmates, and fire safety.
  • Arranging emergency repairs out of hours.

The Living Support Team also organise regular events for you to meet new people, try new things, and experience what Glasgow has to offer. They want you to make the residence your own and shape the activities that take place, so the team are always keen to know your ideas. They're here to host events that you'd like to see as well as support you to create your own socials for residents of the hall.

The team are on duty from 6pm to 8am (6:30pm at Student Apartments) Monday to Friday and 24 hours at weekends. Out with these hours your residence's site office team are on hand to assist.
