You’ll also encourage residents to have use their voice and share their ideas.
Working with the team you’ll come up with great ideas for events, activities, and campaigns in your accommodation – and you’ll make them a reality! You’ll find out what residents in your accommodation want to see going on in their student neighbourhood and you’ll make it happen.

Being a Halls Ambassador made me feel I'm part of something important and part of a community. It definitely helped me be more confident in expressing my ideas and the courage to talk and meet new people.
Being a Halls Ambassador made me feel like a part of the student community. Honestly speaking, due to whole pandemic situation I haven't been able to socialise at all during this year being my first year at uni, and it would get depressive sometimes. Being a member of the team, gave an opportunity to take part in activities that boosted my self esteem and also gave me a chance to meet new people.
