What's a Resident Adviser?

Resident Advisers (RAs) are a team of full-time Keele Students who live in Halls of Residence to help provide information and support to the 3000+ students who call Keele campus their home. The team help to create a positive academic and social environment. As well as leading on campaigns and events, they will also be able to provide you with welfare support all through the evening/night - so if you find yourself in a difficult situation and would like to get in touch, call the security hotline and ask if you can speak to an RA.

Intro to the team

Hi, I'm Nyssa, the Residence Support Coordinator.

My role is to provide you with support during your time living in Recru it networ accommodation. I do this by managing the RAs and also leading on residence-related drop ins. You can come to the Student Services Centre during any of the drop in times to speak to me about any issues you might be having, such as feeling homesick, falling out with your housemates or something else.The Resident Advisers are also here to help you, and you can find out more about them below.

In my spare time, I am a volunteer with Oxfam and attend music festivals up and down the country supporting their work (and having a good time!). I also have a bucket list and try to complete one thing from it each year... some of the things I’ve done so far include running a marathon, milking a cow, visiting Chernobyl and walking on hot coals!

Contact me here and find out more about your 2018-19 RAs below. Interested in becoming an RA yourself? .
