The College Porters


Phone (internal extension number) 92304

Jonathan, Simon, Ben, Chris and Gary's duties are numerous. Many of these are mundane but essential to the running of the college. So, from time to time, when you really need the porter because you have locked yourself out and you're wearing nothing but a towel, he will undoubtedly be in the mail room or out buying a bacon sandwich! Joking aside, the porters are usually the first port of call for the 1001 questions that you will have regarding the college and the uni, and there is a porter on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week during termtime. The porters are here to make your life in Cartmel as easy as possible. If the porter cannot answer your query, he should, theoretically, know someone who can. Problems relating to maintenance, whether in your bedroom, bathroom, kitchen or in your flat in general, should be reported online, if you are unable to access the online service, you can report the problem to the Porter on duty.
