Our experienced team at City College are fully immersed in College life to support residents in getting the best out of their first year experience and achieving their goals for the year.

This dedicated team of staff work hard to ensure your well-being by making City College a pleasant, safe, and enjoyable environment.

“The staff at City College are very approachable and friendly making my time here awesome and memorable. No matter how small the problem my RA’s were always willing to listen, lend a hand and get me where I needed to be. ” Paige, 19.

Residential Assistants (RAs)

The Residential Assistant RA should be the first person you talk to if you have a problem. RAs are senior students that live and work (part-time) in the College. The RA role is to help with College life and ensure that you have a home away from home.

We also like our RAs to be former residents of City College.

Catering Team

Our supportive and renowned catering team make sure all residents are well fed with options for those with specific dietary requirements. Themed events, formal dinners and the City College Ball add to the College environment.
