How the College Works

SCR - Senior Common Room

SCR is the Senior Common Room. All staff members of the University are allocated to a college and hence are members of the Senior Common Room. When we refer to Fylde SCR however we are usually referring to the team of Senior members who help to run the college.

Jean Bennett - Principal

The Principal is the senior member of the College who is responsible to the Council and the Senate of the University for the College finances and for maintaining the effective working and good order of the College

Adam Trepak - College Manager

Adam is your first port of call for all queries or problems. Drop into the college office for everything from scholarship information, memorabilia, college advisor information, booking of the common room and group study room, Lancaster Award information… or just a chat

Louis Pierce - College Senior Advisor

The Senior Advisor is responsible for the welfare and support of Fylde students and manages the College’s Advisory Team (CAT).

Denise is responsible for all accommodation-related matters within the college. If you have any problems with your rent payment or communal living issues then tell Denise right away. Please use the planon system to report any problems in your accommodation. Read more about our accommodation on the main undergraduate accommodation pages.

Louise Rae - Dean

The Dean is a senior member of the College who ensures that there is no breach of university or college rules. Louise is responsible for all disciplinary matters within the College and is aided by the assistant deans who are postgraduate students and live in the college.

Resident Assistant Deans

There are three resident assistant deans in Fylde. For the year 2019/20 these are Georgia Browne, Shannon Delaney and Kyle Settrey. Assistant Deans are postgraduate students who assist the Dean with disciplinary matters and also some welfare issues. You can contact them via the College Office or the Porter’s Lodge if you need them

College Porters

College Porters are available 24 hours a day for the majority of the year and are responsible for mail, room keys, and general security in and around the college. You can always ask the porters if you need help or information or if you have any sort of problems day or night.

JCR - Junior Common Room

Each college has a JCR (except Graduate College which has a Postgrad Board). This is the Junior Common Room and it basically means each and every member of the college, ultimately YOU! The JCR is represented by the JCR Exec who are an elected body of students who organise events and look after the welfare of its students.

Here at Fylde, the student voice is of the highest importance. That is why the JCR Exec will represent the college in the best way they can at all times!
