This blog is an opportunity for students to read and share stories and experiences of residential life at university. It’s a space to find out more about how students before you have navigated their residential journey; what worked and also what didn’t, things you need to know and things you may not have thought about!
Our mission is to create a positive study and workplace wellbeing environment and a space for wellbeing conversations and contemplation.
We strive to build a community where wellbeing is a shared value and responsibility.
We treat everyone and every voice with respect and the right to remain anonymous.
If you have something you think would be useful to discuss or would like to contribute to the blog about your own experiences, please use our submission form to submit your blog, article or to give a suggestion for a future topic.
In addition to the hundreds of volunteering opportunities available year-round on our Volunteering Portal, we have been contacted by various community organisations that are actively seeking volunteers during the university's Summer vacation period.
The opportunities below span a range of date and time commitments, and some may require advance booking or other undertakings in ahead of the day of the activity; please ensure you have read the details carefully and made contact with the organiser to avoid disappointment. Any volunteering undertaken that has been advertised on this page can be recorded on your hours log on the Portal by clicking "Add Community Project".
New opportunities will be added whenever we receive them. To be notified of new summer volunteering roles added to this page, please register on the Summer Volunteering section of the Volunteering Portal; we'll email you when we update!
If you are a local community group seeking volunteers across July, August or September 2023, please send us details at email@example.com .

Please be aware that a few students have been targeted in a telephone spoofing scam over the last few days. The caller has claimed that payments to the University have been unsuccessful and asked for an immediate payment.
In this instance, they claimed to be from Warwick Accommodation, but we are aware that attackers can change their methods, so we ask you to remain vigilant.
If you receive a phone call, from any source, asking you to supply your bank details or other personal information, or if you have any concerns at all, please do not provide any details and hang up straight away.
Scam callers may try to make you feel pressured and rush you, so it’s important to stop and think, and end the call if you have any concerns at all.
Reporting incidents and accessing support
If you receive a scam phone call or communication, even if you are unsure if it’s a scam communication or not, please let the helpdesk know by phone at 024 765 73737, we're open Monday - Friday 9am to 5pm, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also use the Self-Service Online to make requests and report incidents through our web-based tool ServiceNow.

Scammers are often highly sophisticated in the methods they use and there is no shame in falling victim to a scam. The most important thing is to report it as soon as possible and get help.
