Meet the Sandby/Hampden Residence Assistants

Grainne Sherry

Hi my name is Grainne Sherry, but pronounced ‘Gronya’ as it looks nothing like it sounds, and I’m a final year student at NTU studying international business. I enjoy playing netball, having a tv show binge and I’m a sucker for musicals.

I’m excited to be apart of the RA team this year and to be there with you through your living in halls experience.

Josh Merrick

This is my first year being an RA at Sandby but please feel free to ask me any questions or to just come and say hi!

Luke Willis

Hi, I’m Luke Willis the Senior Residence Assistant at Sandby and Hampden. I am a 3rd year Business Management and Entrepreneurship student at Trent. As a 3rd year student I have quite a range of different university experiences from entering university competitions and attending a summer school in France to being a pool society member and surviving a 3 day hangover.

My purpose alongside my team at NTU is to support you and to help eliminate any problems you might experience while staying within University Halls. We want you to have the best experience you can whilst here, as previous first years ourselves, we understand the importance of settling in to university and having a hassle free and enjoyable stay. As such my and the team’s purpose is to be there to support you (the resident) in a variety of ways from mental well-being, to resolving problems with your accommodation, and to offer you exciting year around events. However should we not be able to help you with a problem, we know people who can. If you have any questions about University or problem(s) HMU or ambush me if you see me around.
