Assistant Head of College

Assistant Head of College  - Jonny Lovell


I’ve been at the University of York since 2011, completing an MA in Social Work in 2013, then going on to complete a PhD in 2017. I worked for the university as a researcher and lecturer in the department of Social Policy and Social Work since 2016, before coming to Constantine! Before coming to the university, I worked for 15 years in the voluntary sector in health promotion, community development, volunteer management, and social work-related services.

I support the Head of College to deliver the college strategy and oversee a programme of activities in college. I have day-to-day responsibility for the well-being of college members, and the support that we offer to our students. I manage the College Team, and work closely with other sections of the University, including Careers and Student Support Services.

‌College Tutors

Hello from our 2018-19 College Tutors Dan, David, Eleanor and Francesca. 

The College Tutors are the first point of contact for residents if you have any questions or concerns during your time in Constantine College. We live alongside our resident students and are a key part of the College community. We offer support to students within the college, and are available to talk if you or a friend are having any difficulties you would like to discuss. 

Sometimes it is necessary for the college team to contact students to check on their welfare or deal with any other issues raised with us.  The Assistant Head deals with more serious issues, and Tutors deal with lower level issues. However, you may be contacted by any member of the college team by email, text, or phone, if the need arises.  You may request to engage with your preferred college team member, if you wish.

You can contact us by emailing During term time we have tutor drop ins, Monday 5.30pm to 7pm and Thursday 12 noon to 1.30pm, you'll find us in the reception area in The Forum. In an emergency please contact campus Security on 01904 323333.

Mentors (STYMs)

During welcome week, you will be introduced to the Second and Third Year Mentors (STYMS) for your flat.

Your STYMS will be a point of contact throughout the year to aid your transition into the college community. They will check in with your flat, in person and occasionally by email, throughout the year, provide information about campus life, opportunities in Constantine, YUSU and different support services that the university has for students.

STYMS also function as a familiar face should you come across difficulties during your time as a resident. STYMS can point you toward sources of support and are also trained to escalate to the college team where appropriate.  STYMS are friendly, approachable and caring people who have been selected to welcome you to the college and help you make the most out of where you live and study!

If you are finding it difficult to make friends, or to join in with groups or activities, contact your STYM through the Tutor email or email them directly.  Your STYM or a Tutor will arrange to meet with you and discuss ways of helping you to connect with other people and activities.
