Gareth Kennedy

Head of Residential Services @ University of Ulster

Gareth has worked in student accommodation for 25 years and has lead the accommodation team at Ulster for the last 17 years.

He has recently introduced a new ResLife model based on a management team being available throughout the night at evenings and weekends. This is to develop a sense of community and integration in the Student Villages across three campuses to address issues of loneliness, isolation and respond to incidents.
He is passionate about the student experience whilst ensuring that the service remains sustainable.
