Safety and wellbeing
Your safety and wellbeing is very important to us, and we have a range of trained staff who are here to support you. Depending on the hall, residents have access to out of hours support in the form of helpdesk/resident assistants/on-site security. Campus security is also available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide a safe and secure living environment.
We also have a sector-leading residence life team who offer pastoral support and facilitate regular student-led social activities that help create a sense of community among residents.
To ensure round the clock support for students, our Campus Support Officers (CSO) provide friendly, out-of-hours support. They will be your first point of call for absolutely anything seven days a week.
Whether stressing over an essay, concerned about a friend, or just having “one of those days”, you will be welcome to drop by and see them. The CSOs are always up for a chat and a cuppa regardless. Your CSOs are based in the Loring Management Centre and can be contacted daily from 6pm to 6am and all day on weekends.
A number of our rooms and studios in various halls are accessible and, if you'd like to speak with someone about which halls may be suitable for you, please don't hesitate to email the Accommodation Services team for further advice.
We hope to make finding the right room or hall for you as easy as possible. We work with the Disability team within Goldsmiths to make sure that any medical adaptations you require will be included on your 'Reasonable Adjustments for study and assessments' (RASA) which can then be shared with us. You can start the RASA process by contacting the Disability team at gold.ac.uk/students/disability-support or by ticking one of the boxes in the 'Medical' section at the end of the accommodation application.
On your accommodation application you will also have a box to tell us any additional information you want share with us about your medical requirements or any other requests you may have. We then work with the Disability team who will look at your medical evidence and make recommendations to us for specific things we need to keep in mind when allocating you to a hall or room, whilst we also try to take to into consideration any other requests you may have made.
We appreciate that some of you may be concerned about the impact of Covid-19 on life in halls and, where necessary, we will be adapting and making changes to our on-site arrangements to match the latest government advice.
Our dedicated Accommodation Team has been on hand to support students in halls, to provide guidance and assistance during the pandemic. We will update you by email with all the important changes if, and when, they happen. Find out more about life in halls.
