Students living at University Hall have 24/7 pastoral care from our dedicated and friendly Residential Life team. Together they provide academic, leadership and community initiatives to assist students in making the most of their UWA degree.

UniHallers automatically become part of the Resident’s Club Comittee (ResClub). ResClub  is a student elected group of residents who are passionate about the Hall community and volunteer their time to organise a huge range of social and sporting activities to enrich a student’s experience at the Hall.
