Resident Fellows and Student Fellows
Resident fellows (RFs) are staff members of UNSW and typically in their final years of study or already holding a degree. RFs live with the students on their floors and provide daily academic and pastoral support. RFs aren’t teachers, but they’re a little like a supportive older sibling with loads of experience to pass on and a willingness to help guide the residents.
A Student Fellows (SF) is assigned every year in Baxter College. They’re a volunteer senior student whose role is to create and run a range of proactive wellbeing initiatives for the entire college. The SF works closely with the RA’s, Deputy Dean and Dean, ensuring the wellbeing of all residents is top of mind.
