Welcome everyone and congratulations to our scholarship recipients. We are thrilled to have you as part of our community. Arcady is more than just a place to rest your head; it’s a home away from home where lasting friendships are forged, new experiences are embraced, and personal growth is nurtured.
As you step into our Hall, you’ll immediately sense the warm and inclusive atmosphere that defines our community. We believe that diversity is a strength, and we celebrate the unique backgrounds, perspectives, and talents that each of you brings.
Our dedicated team of Residential Advisors and staff is committed to ensuring that your time here is both enjoyable and fulfilling. From organising engaging events and activities to offering support and guidance, they are here to assist you every step of the way. Whether you have a question, need assistance, or simply want to chat, our friendly staff members are always available to lend a helping hand.
Beyond the facilities, Arcady also provides opportunities for personal and professional development. From workshops, tutorials, and social events, you’ll have access to a variety of resources to help you grow as an individual. Whether you’re exploring new interests, building your career, or developing valuable life skills, Arcadyl is the ideal platform for self-discovery and personal growth.
As you embark on this exciting chapter of your life, we encourage you to embrace the opportunities that await you within our community. Open yourself to new friendships, engage in meaningful conversations, and immerse yourself in the diverse tapestry of experiences that surround you. We encourage everyone to participate in one of our learner voice opportunities.
This is your chance to create lifelong memories, form lasting connections, and shape the person you aspire to become. Together, let’s make this year an unforgettable one as we learn, laugh, and grow as a community. Get ready for an incredible journey filled with endless possibilities!
Students at Arcady get to participate in a well balanced residential life programme, that provides a holistic range of activities and academic support.
We aim to have something on each week that gives students an opportunity to try something new, or have a bit of fun. This can vary from themed dinners, talent shows, karaoke nights, quizzes, arts and crafts, or a variety of activities in our common room. We know that uni life can be stressful, so we also offer tutorials, and further academic support and pastoral care around exam times.
Arcady participates in all the wider community events – Interhall Sports, Cultural Shield, and Student Volunteer Army events as it is important to us that we live outside of our hall and experience all that UC has to offer in your first year.
