The UCA gratefully acknowledges the important contribution of our sponsors which significantly contributes to the professional development and personal interaction of members. In 2022 we are pleased to continue the relationship with our sponsors ADES, Chartwells and The University of Queensland.
Without the assistance of our sponsors it would be extremely difficult to provide the same high quality level of benefits to our Members which include our conferences and forums.

They currently work with over 270 university residential sites across Australia and New Zealand, providing services to approximately 100,000 university students each year. ADES have developed their own online eLearning platform, ideal for pre arrival induction, which can be customised to reflect college culture, values and expectations. ADES customise each in person training program for residential leaders and staff, as well as customising cultural wellbeing programs that are relevant to each respective college.
ADES are also certified to deliver the accredited Mental Health First Aid courses, which can be delivered in person, blended (eLearning and in person) or virtually. All ADES facilitators have a wealth of knowledge and experience in the university residential sector, enabling the training to be reflective of what residential leaders and staff may encounter in their respective roles.
