Nominations are now open for several different elected roles across campus in our Summer Elections

Whether it's as a student group committee member, an SSO Executive member, or a Community Officer, nominating yourself to become a student leader means that you will have a direct impact on student experience at Royal Holloway.

Student Group Elections

If you're an active student group member, now is the time to nominate yourself for a student group committee position. As a committee member, you'll become a leader of your group and leave your stamp on student experience at Royal Holloway! 

While it may seem like a lot of work, it is one of the most rewarding things you will do at university, allowing you to meet new people and share in opportunities, whilst also adding great value to your CV. 

Who can run?

Only current Royal Holloway students, who will still be studying in the 2024/25 academic year can nominate themselves in this election.

You must also be a member of the group(s) you intend to run for, so make sure you have bought a standard membership (even if it is a free membership)!

How can I nominate myself?

Head to the Student Group Elections section of our elections website. There will be an option to nominate yourself and upload a 400-word manifesto. Please be aware that the nominations will appear as ‘pending’ until nominations close on 3 May.

Societies, Sports and Opportunities Executive Elections

Nominations are also open for the Societies, Sports and Opportunities Executive (SSO); if you're passionate about student groups and activities on campus, stand now to become a member of SSO!

The SSO Executive is a committee of elected student representatives, who meet termly to discuss ratifying new student groups, approving the annual allocation of resources to student groups and holding the VP Societies and Sport accountable for their work. To nominate yourself to become a member of the SSO Executive, you must be a current committee member of a society, sports club or media outlet.

If you'd like to take up this opportunity to have more say and influence on how our student groups are run, nominate yourself to join the Executive.

Community Officers Elections

If you're interested in driving forward our Student Communities by coordinating activities, events, and campaigns, stand now to become a Community Officer!

Communities give underrepresented groups the best platform possible to have their voices heard on campus and beyond.

Most of our Community Officers were elected during the Leadership Elections but there are a few unfilled roles that need your attention. We’re looking for Community Officers to represent groups across campus including Black & Global Majority, Postgraduate Research, Disabled, Mature, and Parents & Carer students. We've listened to your feedback and have decided to split the Mature, Parents & Carers Community Officer role into two roles so that Community Officers can focus on the needs of their specific group.

If you have any questions or you'd like a one-to-one chat with a member of staff about any of the roles, please get in touch at

Nominations are open until 23:59 on Friday 3 May across all roles in the Summer Elections. We can't wait to hear from you!
