The College facilitates academic and pastoral assistance, particularly for first years, through its Residential Advisors (RAs). The RAs are later year students with strong academic performance and a demonstrated caring attitude, they will be able to help you adjust to your new home here at Burgmann.
A major part of the RAs role is to provide pastoral care. This means they are part of the support system in College, and can help you find your way in the College community. All have been trained in various aspects of residential life from first aid, mental health first aid, academic assistance, special needs and empathetic listening.
RAs report to the College Dean, and, with their help, provide the environment for what we hope is a happy and supporting environment to live.
