What is the Residence Life programme at FutureLets?

The Residence Life ('ResLife' for short) at FutureLets is a programme meant to create and engage our resident-community living in FutureLets halls and houses. The programme has a variety of sports and social events planned throughout the academic year for undergraduate and postgraduate students. The key is to bring everyone together – regardless of your ethnicity, nationality or studies and to improve the student living experience here at Coventry University.

The emphasis is on community, belonging and engagement.

Who runs the ResLife programme?

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


What are we looking for in a Resident Assistant?

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. Candidates must demonstrate leadership, interpersonal skills, and show a commitment to diversity and engagement!
