Roberts Hall Residential Support Team
Lloyd England - College Head, Roberts Hall
Lloyd England is a Lecturer in the Monash Law Faculty. Trained as a lawyer in the UK, Trade Marks Attorney in Australia and a Monash alumni (LLM), Lloyd has run Monash Law School's Student Experience and Student Support Program since 2007. Through a diverse program of initiatives students can access a number of co-curricular activities which are aimed at building a sense of community, fostering well-being and engagement throughout the student journey.
Lloyd's passion is to empower individuals through legal education and add value to the Monash student experience via pastoral care, careers advice, mentoring and a variety of other initiatives to provide a safe, supportive and positive environment for every student. Lloyd is committed to optimising students' overall success whilst at Monash. In 2013 in recognition of the valuable role he plays at Monash University Lloyd was awarded a Vice-Chancellor's Social Inclusion Award.
Lloyd welcomes the community of Robert's Hall and fosters a positive, relaxed, socially inclusive and comfortable Hall's Residential Experience, much like he enjoyed when living as a first year university student in Beaumont Hall, Leicester, UK. He is excited to be running Roberts Hall in 2017 and working with all MRS students to create a fun environment providing a vibrant social culture based on mutual respect and understanding.

Travis Robinson - Residential Support Assistant, Roberts Hall
Travis is originally from the small town of Markwood in North East Victoria but moved to Melbourne in 2013 to study a Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Education (Secondary) here at Monash. Currently in his 5th Year, he plans to major in mathematics and minor in psychology.
Travis became a Resident Advisor in 2013 with the Sports Programs (Clayton) portfolio within Monash Residential Services, followed by the Community portfolio at Howitt Hall in 2014 and 2015. He has loved every minute of being a part of the MRS family and has found a strong passion for communities that are inclusive and compassionate.
