Residential Tutors

Overview of the Role of Residential Tutor

    • Residential tutors participate fully in our community life as members of our pastoral care team, and are proactive in attending to the personal and academic wellbeing of our students. Residential Tutors act as role models and mentors to the students living at St Mary’s College. They are available to assist students as they transition from home to university and college life, or to life in another sate or country! They also talk through issues affecting students’ academic/personal lives and offer advice on where to seek assistance when appropriate.The role of Residential Tutor is integral to the life and community of the College! Our residential tutors are fully involved in College activities and take an active interest in the lives and progress of Mary’s students. As older, more experienced members of the community, Residential Tutors are important roles models who live the values of the College in their daily life. Sometimes they are simply a reassuring presence for students. Residential Tutors do this by being present at College as much as possible, and by being accessible and approachable!

They are individuals who:

  • support the Catholic ethos of the College
  • are positive role models for students and within the wider University community
  • develop and maintain rapport with young adults
  • engage with young adults in a respectful and caring manner
  • support the College leadership in its vision for the College
