Residence Life

What is the Residence Life programme at FutureLets?

By choosing to live at Coventry University accommodation, you will be part of a very supportive community that welcomes all. The ResLife team are here to help you have the best student experience possible and inspire you to make the most of your time here at Coventry University. ResLife offers a wide range of activities, events, sports, fundraising, life-skills sessions and information and awareness campaigns for you. Every week there are loads of opportunities to get involved such as trips and activities from cooking, karaoke, move nights and cultural celebrations.

We strive to produce a fun, encouraging and action packed programme which will enhance your university experience during your time in student halls. As we have many links to the wider university such as the Students Union and Sport Active, we are able to provide partnership events which you do not want to miss. As well as organising our own events, we encourage students to suggest new ideas of what they want to get involved in and even run themselves.

Health and Wellbeing

Coming to university can feel scary. We understand you might experience feelings of being homesick, anxiousness, or stress. How you feel and think is important to us. We support health and wellbeing all year round, especially over exam periods and the first few weeks of your university life. Our ResLife team of current students can be great people to speak to when you need support.

Skills

Adjusting to university can be a tough, ResLife are here to help guide and support you into independent living. Our team helps you have a smooth transition into university life and then go on to live and learn independently. On arrival our focus aim is to prepare for your arrival to your new accommodation to give you the best start possible. This could include anything from learning how to cook, how to set and keep to a budget, and learning a new pastime, through to how to write a CV and interview tips.

Community

ResLife will offer opportunities for students to engage in their local community and become active members of their community through campaigns, fundraising and volunteering. Participating in community events not only makes a difference to the people being supported, but also makes a difference to every student’s career prospects

The ResLife programme is managed and overseen by Chloe and Tom, the FutureLets Residence Life Coordinator and Manager. They're supported by a team of Resident Assistants who live in the halls, and help to manage the events and provide support to the students.

Are you a 2nd year (or above) full-time student, that has lived in the student halls before and want to make a difference in the student community? Then we are looking for you! A Resident Assistant (RA) provides support, acts as a resource for students, creates and coordinates social events, and works together in a team with other RAs.

As a RA, you will develop positive relationships with the residents and act as a role model. You will have to act as a resource for the residents in regards to campus services and encourage conversations about personal issues, academic and social concerns, future plans and spirituality. The RA will assist the Residence Life Coordinator with organising, operating and facilitating events for residents making these events as inclusive and supportive as possible. RAs are open-minded students who enjoy working with diverse groups of people. They are organised, responsible, open to feedback and able to make good ethical decisions.
