The team consists of 4 Wardens. Our role is to look after you and the hall of residence in cooperation with Xenia staff from Chapter 1. One of us is on-call every night after Reception closes at 8pm in case of emergency. We are also here to assist you with any problems, complaints or questions that you may have. Most of the time the responsibility is social and pastoral (we like this), with a little administration thrown in, and, as the need arises, disciplinary.
The people you will probably have most contact with initially (besides your neighbours) are the Seniors, short for Hall Seniors or Senior Students. As a bunch of ex-freshers, they have returned this year to help you settle in, and to help organise the Hall social life and events throughout the year. The Seniors have already been through at least one year of College, so they are a useful source of information on London life and generally supply a sympathetic ear to people’s problems. Feel free to drop in on them to ask any questions, or just have a chat over a cup of coffee.
The team at Xenia look forward to welcoming you and getting to know all of the students who will be living in our halls. Xenia staff will be working closely with the Wardening Team to ensure your stay at Xenia is the best it can be! As well as ensuring everything is up and running in the building and that it is maintained and cleaned, Xenia staff will also arrange events and social activities for all students to get involved in and provide reception cover throughout the week.
