Rachael Hunt (she/her)

Digby Stuart Student Wellbeing Officer (SWO)  

Digby Stuart College has a designated Student Wellbeing Officer to support anyone experiencing difficulties with their wellbeing. Your Wellbeing Officer is your first contact for any doubt or question around wellness resources or issues. They can refer and signpost you to a range of support services both within the University and externally, depending on your needs and specific context.

The Student Wellbeing Officers can provide in-person appointments as well as online (via phone or Microsoft Teams) during the week. You can book a first appointment with them to have an initial conversation and see what next steps can be most helpful. You can contact them by emailing swodigby@roehampton.ac.uk.

College Wardens

If you need support during the evening or weekend, the University has a team of College Wardens, who provide out-of-hours support and pastoral care to our students on campus. 

The Digby Stuart College Wardens for this year are:

Bede, Shaw & Newman

Elm Grove

To request out-of-hours support from a Warden, please call the Security team on 020 8392 3333.

The College Wardens are managed by two Senior College Wardens, Shai Danmole-Ellis and Olivia Ogunbunmi, who are responsible for coordinating the Warden teams across all colleges.
