Residential Wardens

Residential Wardens are here for you!

Our Residential Wardens are either students or staff who are recruited, trained and managed by the Student Support Service and are an important part of the extensive range of services provided by the university for students. Your Residential Warden can provide you with information and advice to help you settle in to your accommodation and help you get your most out of your time at Lincoln. Our Residential Wardens will be available throughout the academic year for students who live in university managed accommodation to help resolve any problems which may occur between residents and will play an important role in helping to maintain a balance between the rights and interests of individuals and the community as a whole. The Residential Wardens operate outside of office hours on a duty system which will also include emergencies and any complaints of anti-social behaviour.

Our Residential Wardens are here for you and one of the most important things they can do is listen. If you are worried about something, feeling homesick or if you are concerned about one of your friends or flatmates but not sure what to do then talk to your Warden. Your Warden will be able to advise you on what to do or will refer you to someone who can.

Our Residential Wardens deal with matters such as late-night noise, disputes over shared facilities and other antisocial behaviour issues. All of our Residential Wardens are trained in mediation and will often be able to deal with the problem themselves however, part of their job is to refer some matters to the Senior Residential Wardens or the Residential Warden Manager in the Student Support Centre, who can if necessary, refer to the university’s disciplinary processes.

The on-duty Warden is available every evening from 18:00 and at 24/7 on weekends and can be contacted on 07971 589326.
