Room Questionnaire

Most first year students share a room in College. It is therefore EXTREMELY important that you supply as much information as possible on this form. Please note that this form will be treated confidentially, so be as honest as possible!  If you have good reasons (medical or other) for not wanting to share a room, please state these and the Vice-Principal & Senior Tutor will try to accommodate all reasonable requests (N.B. there is only a small number of single rooms in college available for first year students).  To enable the college to allocate rooms you are required to complete the Roommate questionnaire found HERE

College Tutor

Your college tutor plays a vital role in your life at Chad’s for many reasons. A college tutor is someone who will welcome you into the college community and who will be there to offer support and advice throughout your time at Chad’s and help you think about what you do after it! Our tutors at Chad’s have a wide range of experiences in many different fields, some of which you may be interested in, such as running national charities, working in local and national government, the law, the army, industry, medicine, teaching – as well as academics representing a wide range of academic disciplines. A Tutor can be a really valuable source of future references so it’s worth getting to know them well during the two or three annual one-to-one meetings you will have with them! It’s therefore vital that you provide us with as much information as possible on this form so that we can select an appropriate mentor for you. You will have an opportunity to meet your Tutor during Fresher’s week. To enable college to arrange a suitable tutor please complete the Tutor Form HERE.
