At Queen’s University we make the support to resident students a priority and this is provided by three Residential Life Coordinators and a team of sixteen Residential Assistants who live in residences at Elms Village, Grant House, College Gardens, Guthrie House and Mount Charles. Our Residential Life Coordinators and Residential Assistants will be able to offer support if you feel lonely or homesick or need encouragement to join in and make friends. They also organise and promote a weekly programme of social events throughout each semester.
The Residential Life Coordinators can be found in the Support Office in the lower ground floor of the Treehouse. Opening hours for the Support Office are listed below. These opening hours are subject to change.
Residential Assistants support the Residential Life Coordinators and help you to settle into the accommodation. They are students themselves, usually in their 2nd or 3rd year.
If you are interested in getting involved as a Residential Assistant in the future please speak with your Residential Assistant or one of the Residential Life Coordinators; we begin the recruitment process early in April each year.
The role now qualifies for Degree Plus status so the experience gained will travel on your CV when you leave Queen's University.
Compulsive gambling is recognised as an emotional illness. Living with this illness can prove a devastating experience. Family relationships can become unbearably strained. The home can be filled with bitterness, frustration and resentment. There seems to be no way to solve insurmountable difficulties. If you or someone you know are affected by gambling, Gam-Anon can help. For further information see http://www.gamanon.org.uk/
University is not just about getting a degree. It involves mixing with and getting to know a new group of people and coping by yourself, possibly for the first time. You may feel that drinking will boost your confidence and help you fit in.
If you drink more than you can cope with you may find yourself missing classes and falling behind and catching up can start to seem difficult. Partying a lot can also hit your bank balance hard and you may be more inclined to take risks – like having unprotected sex.
Drinking may well be a feature of your life while at university but don’t let it define you. Don’t be afraid to do something other than drink. If you do think that your partying is starting to impact badly upon your course and your pocket, don’t worry – you are not the first.
For advice, support and information you can call in to the Counselling Service located on the 2nd Floor, Student Guidance Centre on University Road Monday-Friday during office hours.
Before you start drinking, set yourself a limit on how much you’re going to drink.
Only take a fixed amount of money to spend on alcohol.
You can still enjoy a drink but go for smaller sizes. Try bottled beer or a small glass of wine.
Cut down the alcohol by swapping strong beers or wines for ones with a lower strength
Drink a pint of water before you start drinking and try to drink water between drinks. Avoid using alcohol to quench your thirst. Have a soft drink instead.
|175ml glass of 13% wine||
|25 ml glass of 40% single spirit & mixer||
|Pint of 4% lager||
|275ml bottle of 5.5% alcohol||
