students looking at DNA structure

Meet Lidia

Lidia Pintea

My name is Lidia and I am the House Parent at Coleridge Road where I live on site with my husband, Marius, who does the maintenance at St Andrew’s and my two children.

I have been working at St Andrews for six years and really love the atmosphere and comraderie at the college.  I spent most of my time looking after students at our Coleridge Road Residence and it is very important for me to know that students feel at home and are happy.

I like my job as House Parent because it gives me the opportunity to talk to different people from different backgrounds and we have students from all parts of the world.  It is so interesting to learn from my students about their different cultures and where they come from.

In my spare time I am a real family person.  I love spending time with my husband and my two children.  I am also very keen on travelling and exploring new places.

I really look forward to welcoming you to Coleridge Road.
