Pastoral care and warden team
We are here to provide pastoral care and deal with discipline issues within the hall. We work closely with residence staff to ensure a safe and enjoyable time for all students.
LSE offers many services to assist students. Financial support, study and exam skills workshops, a well-being office and a variety of counselling services. If you are unsure about who to talk to or what's available, please ask us and we will point you in the right direction.
The warden team also works closely with the student hall committee to provide a diverse and exciting mix of events and activities at the hall. Do get involved as much as possible, especially during the first few weeks of term.
We strongly encourage you to abide by the LSE regulations and guidelines for living in LSE halls. The Student Halls Handbook contains all the information about disciplinary procedures, including the types of activities that are inappropriate and their consequences, such as fines and possible expulsion from the hall. See: Student Halls Handbook

Stéphane Bitty, Amir Deng, Andrew Hughes, Michael Terrington, Sevilay Erdogan, Ludmila Monakova and Rachael Nyanamany are looking after the day to day reception and administration services at Rosebery Hall.
They are a friendly bunch who will gladly help out with any of your questions. They are certainly the right people to ask about the local nightlife; no need to say any more!
Reception never closes so night security is looked after by a team of security guards.

To report a fault, complete the online maintenance report form.
We have a team of three people looking after the maintenance of the hall: Tony, Philip and Alan. This team deals with any situation from blocked sinks to changing light bulbs. Now how many LSE maintenance people does it take to change a light bulb?
The housekeeping team has a wealth of experience of looking after and cleaning the hall. They all work hard, and you can help them by keeping your environment clean and by using the bins and recycling facilities provided in the hall.
In the kitchen we have the team of Alan and his chefs. You will meet the servers on a daily basis: Noreen, Eyob and Christian. These guys work seven days a week to provide students with tasty and healthy dinners. They are always willing to listen to your comments and suggestions, so if you fancy a Mexican night, just ask!
Chef's quote: 'Countless numbers of people have eaten from this kitchen and gone on to lead normal lives'.
Meet your student hall committee
Besides carrying out our constitutional roles we are all very friendly and approachable, and more than willing to help you settle into our homely and fun-loving environment by going the extra mile.
As a committee we are faced with several diverse tasks. These tasks all revolve around and coincide with one goal, a goal that each and every committee (past and definitely present) aim to achieve: making your time at Rosebery memorable while providing you with value for the money you pay as a contribution to the social life of Rosebery.
The committee is an open-minded representative body that is elected to not only represent but more importantly fight for the needs of the Rosebery society. We are in charge of hosting and organising parties and barbecues, movie nights, pub crawls and walks and excursions to various (cultural or not quite so) venues.
The social committee is open to any suggestion of social and athletic activities from everybody and, more importantly, is at all times prepared to deliberate on any issue that a resident would like to raise.
