Did you know the Students' Union has its very own app? Launched last year, it's your gateway to all things SU, from seeing upcoming events, joining clubs and societies through to getting the latest news.
Available now from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store, installing couldn't be easier. Simply search for 'StudentLink', open the app and then select Royal Holloway from the list of options to get access to these great features:
Democracy underpins everything we do as a Union, and ensuring you have your say on the way the Students’ Union is run, is at the top of our agenda. Every year we hold elections for a number of different roles – Sabbatical Officers, student groups, academic reps, the list goes on…
The app gives you a much quicker and accessible platform to cast your votes, and we hope that this will help to engage a wider audience with democratic decisions within the Union.
The app integrates seamlessly with our sports clubs and societies, allowing you to purchase memberships and tickets. You’ll also be able to keep tabs on the latest offers, events, campaigns, activities and news.
Something that comes up frequently in our yearly Rate Your Union survey is the cost of attending our evening events. So what did we do? We listened and took action!
In a big shakeup to how we sell tickets to our core club nights on Wednesday and Friday nights, we introduced discounted early bird tickets exclusive to the app last year and it's been a huge success. These are available for just £4.50 when bought through the app 7+ days in advance of an event! Online/on-the-door prices will remain at £5/£7 respectively, so the app really is going to be the place to be to secure your tickets for the lowest possible price.
While we would love to scrap entry fees altogether, this just simply wouldn’t be sustainable for us – you can check out more about how we make the decisions around our finances on our Value For Money page.
We are always striving to deliver on our digital first ambition, as set out in our Strategic Plan, and the introduction of the app will go a long way to providing you with an improved service through digital means. So while you’re busy lapping up our discounted club night tickets, just remember to get involved with the democratic decisions that drive everything we do as a Union, and vote in our elections. We’d say that’s a fair deal.
