24/7 Resident Support

You can feel comfortable in your new home with a network of staff and senior students to support you

University Hall is here for you

You can feel safe knowing that six staff members live on site, together with a team of Residential Advisors (student leaders), who provide after hours support if you need it. Being owned by UWA means the University's security team conducts regular patrols at the College and is available to walk residents home if they're studying late on campus.

Meet our Deputy Principal

Janet has been at UniHall since 2008, where she was Student Services Manager at Currie Hall, working closely with the student leadership teams to develop student programs and activities as well as managing the overall resident experience.

In 2013 she became the Deputy Principal of the new and larger University Hall, managing the Residential Life team; in 2014 she also assumed the role of Alumni Manager, working with an alumni committee to encourage engagement and participation of former residents. Janet has a wide range of hobbies depending on the season.

"I love the fact that every semester is different at UniHall. We welcome new people from all over the world into an already vibrant and active community. We see current residents developing into outstanding leaders and role models as they share their own experiences at UniHall and UWA with new residents, making sure that they feel supported at a time when everything can feel a bit overwhelming. This is 'independent living with a safety net' and I love the energy and sense of purpose we share in making this a successful community."

Stuart Ede
Residential Life Coordinator

Stuart has been part of the University Hall team for five years and is originally from London.

Stuart was a physical education teacher for over sixteen years in the UK and has a strong passion for pastoral care. He leads the Pathways to Leadership, Culture and Environment and Arts and Crafts Programs at the Hall. When Stuart isn't following his beloved Chelsea FC and London Wasps it is highly likely he will be listening to Paul Weller!

"Throughout my career I have always been involved in education and supporting students in their lifelong learning journeys. As an RLC, I am passionate about providing outstanding pastoral support to residents and ensuring there are opportunities to flourish and develop personally. Living and working at University Hall provides the perfect platform in which to meet residents from diverse backgrounds and build long lasting relationships."

Stefanie Collette
Residential Life Coordinator

Stefanie has been part of the University Hall team for five years as one of the Residential Life Coordinators.

Prior to joining University Hall, Stefanie worked as a Counsellor at UWA Counselling and Psychological Services. She has a Masters of Counselling and is passionate about student wellbeing. Stefanie oversees the Sports, Health & Wellbeing programs. Stefanie is always up for a chat — especially about ice hockey, or why maple syrup is the secret elixir of life.

"My favourite part of being a Residential Life Coordinator is building strong, authentic and lasting relationships with our residents. For me, nothing is more important than supporting our students to achieve their academic, professional, social and personal goals. I feel very lucky to work with such talented individuals and I’m always delighted when alumni come back to UniHall for a visit!"

Dr Lee-Von Kim
Residential Life Coordinator

Lee-Von joined the University Hall team in 2015 with a wealth of experience in the academic environment at The University of Western Australia.

She is a member of the UWA Academic Board and oversees the UniHall Academic Team, Community Service and Social Life Programs. Lee-Von loves to talk about 90s music and has a Simpsons quote for every occasion.

"I studied English, History and Fine Arts at UWA and have taught there since 2006. I have a PhD in English and Cultural Studies, with a research interest in postcolonial studies, trauma theory and autobiography. Between 2013 and 2015 I was Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Autobiography in Comparative Perspective at the University of Oxford, and a fellow of New College, Oxford." 



Your Residential Advisors

A large team of senior students are employed by University Hall to assist with the physical, emotional and social well being of all residents. Every floor in the UniHall houses are assigned with a Residential Advisor who will welcome you when you arrive and support you throughout your stay. Each night after 5pm, two Residential Advisors are on duty and act as the first point of contact to provide after-hours support.
