When the Warden is away

I am away on leave from Monday 5th June until Wednesday 14th June 2017, and will not be able to reply to email or social media messages between those dates.

I will aim to catch up with correspondence received whilst I am away no later than Monday 19th June.

But you don't necessarily have to wait until then for a reply! Read below to see if your query could be dealt with by someone else sooner.

If you need a landlord or tenancy reference:

For all very urgent or emergency problems:
  • Go to reception or phone 020 7756 8200 and ask to speak with the duty manager (during office hours, normally 9 till 5, Monday to Friday) or the duty senior member (evenings, nights and weekends).
  • In very serious cases, Hall staff can contact me for guidance 24 hours a day, and can also call on the help of a warden from another hall of residence if a senior presence is urgently required on site.

If you want to meet with me after I return:

For suggestions about the Hall or facilities (including catering):
