The ResLife programme is here to build a community in Residences – we also have Free Pizza! 

The Student Support team in Residences run the ResLife programme along with the Student Support Assistants and ResLife Volunteers. We run a series of events and initiatives throughout the year to give you the opportunity to meet new people and try new things. Most of our events are free, or have only a small charge to cover costs. If you’ve got an idea for an event we could run let us know!  

Throughout the year we run events like:

  • The Big Giveaway (the first Sunday of term – a chance for you to pick up some useful bits and pieces for your flat for free)
  • Flat Night In (a weekly chance to win enough pizza to feed your flat)
  • Edinburgh Christmas Markets
  • ResLife cinema tickets (a special deal with the nearby DCA cinema)
  • Meet the Guide Dog Puppies
  • Broughty Ferry Beach (to enjoy the sun and eat some ice cream)

Most important of all we run the annual Rezzie Awards!

These are a chance to celebrate everything good that happens in the Residences throughout the year. Every spring we ask for nominations for Rezzie Awards, and the winners are treated to a special night out and secret prizes! We receive nominations for flats which are:

  • Most Fun
  • Best Decorated
  • Most Foodie
  • Most Homely
  • Most Friendly
  • Most Community Engagement
  • Cleanest (this is our most competitive category!)

There is also a chance to nominate your Student Support Assistant for Best SSA. If they’ve helped you through a difficult time or just been a good laugh then let us know!
