Hall Tutor System

UNNC Halls of Residence represent a community of a substantial size. Ideally, the community would be ‘managed’ naturally by the residents themselves and there would be no welfare, interpersonal or disciplinary problems. However, in the real world, it is necessary to provide welfare support, whose presence makes it possible for most students to live peacefully and have productive lives without undue stress resulting from the proximity of large number of students. The support system of UNNC Hall Tutor System is comprised of a Warden, Deputy Warden and a team of Hall Tutors, in which the Hall Tutors need to report to the Deputy Warden, Deputy Wardens to the Warden and finally the Warden needs to report to Residential College.

Part of the students’ university experience is meeting people and learning to live together. Hall Tutors and Wardens help with the students’ wellbeing through social and cultural activities by supporting them throughout the whole academic year. In order to make sure that all students feel safe and comfortable in their residences, Hall Tutors need to make sure that the residential rules are followed and respected.

The Tutors provide day-to-day pastoral care to all residents of international and domestic Halls; including welfare, disciplinary and social related activities.


These Student Residences are categorised in Halls as follows:


Hall A – Buildings 14, 18, 19

Hall B – Buildings 16, 17, 20, 22

Hall C – Building 23

Hall D – Building 11, 12, 13, 15
