General Information

Our Senior Resident Tutors on the Treforest campus tend to be serving members of staff, whilst our Resident Tutors are usually postgraduate and/or research students.

Opportunities for postgraduate and research students to take up the position of a resident/welfare tutor arise each academic year. These posts offer the opportunity to become both involved in the pastoral work of the University and the welfare and disciplinary procedures in halls, together with other Resident and Welfare Tutors and centres within Student Services.

A variety of accommodation is available ranging, from fully self-contained flats to standard tutor rooms (which are en-suite).

If you are interested in becoming a resident tutor please email us for further information.
