The Student Community Wardens 2012/13

Student Community wardens

The Student Community Wardens encourage the integration of students as active citizens and facilitate the work of the Community Liaison Officer. Student Wardens work closely with the Students’ Guild, the local Police and the City Council to support fellow students living off campus.

There are two Student Community Warden teams, with five in each team. The Exeter East Team and the Exeter West Team provide a supportive presence to students living across the wards of St James, St David's, Pennsylvania, Newtown and Polsloe.

Wardens spend their time conducting 'walkabouts' in their area, signposting students with community queries, attending community meetings and developing their own termly community projects. Wardens also facilitate ongoing campaigns and initiatives, including the 'Students On The Move' refuse removal scheme. They can also help security-mark your valuables.

Wardens have access to the StreetWise fund - financing projects that bring students and permanent residents together. 

Look our for your local Warden - they wear branded ‘Student Community Warden’ jackets and polo-shirts and are always happy to chat. If you would like to contact your local Wardens directly with a query, or make an appointment to receive a UV security markup pack, please email

The Community Warden scheme has been developed and supported by the University, Exeter Community Safety Partnership, and Devon and Cornwall Constabulary.
