Latest news and updates

Message from Robert Dyson, Chair, on behalf of the committee - September 2020: With the continuing uncertainty we have decided to abandon all activities of the Retired Staff Association for the rest of this calendar year. The committee will convene as soon as conditions make events possible. We would hope to hold the AGM with the Spring meeting. We would also hope to re-commence trips and walks next year. We shall not seek membership fees for 2021 as we have been unable to deliver any events this year. Keep safe, and we will look forward to meeting you all next year.

Welcome to the Retired Staff Association (RSA) webpage - this is your hub for news, updates, messages and information about upcoming events and meet-ups.

About us

The RSA is a way for retired members of staff from the University of Warwick to stay in contact and keep up to speed on all the latest Warwick goings-on.

Being a member means:

  • you'll receive the RSA newsletter and hear about current University activities, developments and achievements
  • you can stay in touch with other retired members of staff
  • you're allowed access to certain University amenities, including the Library, and also the Sports & Wellness Hub, Cryfield Village, at staff rates (but car parking charges will apply). The general public membership rate includes car parking which may be a cheaper option at this time.
  • you can get involved with social activities with the rest of the group, from rambles and coach trips through to Christmas events and talks.

Even if you have moved away from the area, the RSA can provide a valuable means of keeping in touch - you'll receive regular newsletters as well as some of the University's own publications and mailings.

Get involved

Fancy joining our group? Membership is open to all staff who have now retired from the University and are in receipt of a University pension.

Staff memories

"Jack Butterworth was wont to go walkabout when bored and on one occasion he picked me for company. We wandered into Rootes Reception, which at that time looked pretty bare and unwelcoming. 'Oh,' says JB, 'that corner leads into the kitchens, and might be a good place to introduce an evening eating area. All we need is two walls incorporating plenty of glass, and a cooking area...'"
