Orbital Magazine is the official publication of Royal Holloway Students’ Union. We produce a monthly magazine that is distributed online, on campus, and around the local area. We aim to give all our student journalists the opportunity to be published, whilst offering support and guidance on writing in a way that best communicates what matters to you.
It’s not all journalism though! If you’re interested in photography, illustration, design, podcasts, event management, marketing, or fundraising, we have something for you too! You don’t need to have experience to join, just bring your enthusiasm and we’ll teach you everything you need to know.
Orbital provides great opportunities for both career and personal development, with a combination of educational and social events.
All students can submit articles to Orbital Magazine, even non-members. However, purchasing a membership gets you awesome benefits so we strongly recommend you doing so. Your membership fee goes towards running and developing the society, financing our print runs, and of course putting on events for you- our members!
As an Orbital member you will receive:
Feedback from our editorial team on all articles submitted
Exclusive access to events by industry professionals
Careers and development advice from the team
Access to Orbital cameras and equipment
Access to InDesign and Photoshop
Over the course of the year we host a variety of events and are always open to suggestions. The type of events you can expect to be seeing include:
Regular socials including film nights, games, drinks and more
Our events will be looking a little different for Term 1 in order to keep everyone safe, but there will still be plenty going on. We will be offering both virtual and socially distanced events, including everything from workshops to water fights ;) If you have any suggestions or requests, please get in contact with us!
