Resident Advisers

The College appoints a number of Resident Advisers (RAs) each academic year. Their primary responsibility is the care and development of student residents. This includes all aspects of ensuring that the College is a safe environment physically, emotionally and psychologically.

RAs also assist with College administration out of business hours.

Resident Adviser on Duty

There is always a Resident Adviser (RA) on Duty outside of business hours. The RA on Duty can be contacted by dialling  +61 2 9856 1000.

The RA on Duty and all RAs have the responsibility of dealing with disturbances and/or providing advice and assistance in College after hours. The College expects residents to accept personal responsibility for their behaviour and anticipates that they will consider other residents’ needs at all times. It may sometimes be necessary, however, for RAs to remind students that their behaviour is disturbing others or is unacceptable. Residents are asked to comply with all requests from RAs as quickly as possible. If residents believe that an RA’s request or instructions are unreasonable, they should comply with the request or instructions at the time and discuss the matter later with the Dean of Students.

Academic Tutors

The College appoints a number of Academic Tutors each academic year.  They are a mix of postgraduate, senior undergraduate students, external tutors and alumni who provide academic assistance to College residents in their area of academic and/or professional competence.

Academic Tutors organise study sessions and/or tutorials to provide valuable study skills essential to university study.  In addition to regular tutorials, the College provides a number of supplementary exam review sessions.

Students’ Association (ADS)

The ADS of Dunmore Lang College is the student body union that runs within the college. It is structured with an executive (President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary) and many subcommittees and special area representatives.  Some of the subcommittees include the Ball Committee, Magazine, Drama, Environment and Shop committees.  Some of the special area representatives include sport, social, video, food, supper and international.

At the beginning of the year each student pays a small student fee which goes towards the ADS.  This money is then used to subsidise many of the social events held throughout the year (including the Ball and Annual dinner), sporting equipment and ground hire for intercollegiate games, maintenance and purchase of college items (i.e. pool table and table tennis table).
