Our wardens help you

Kelly Boazman, Warden, shares her experiences:

As wardens, we live among you in the Courts of Residence to support your welfare needs and maintain discipline, when needed. All the Wardens have day jobs in a variety of departments across the University, so our wide-ranging combined experience of the University means that we are often the first port-of-call for information. If we can’t provide exactly what you need, we will know who to put you in touch with in order to help.
