Orbital Magazine is the official publication of Royal Holloway Students’ Union. We produce a 44-page monthly magazine that is distributed online, on campus, and around the local area. We want 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. As a member, you'll not only be able to submit articles but meet loads of people and make lifelong friends. 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:
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 see include:
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 and film nights to picnics and water fights! If you have any suggestions or requests, please get in contact with us.
We’re really looking forward to welcoming new students and have created a WhatsApp group for you to join and ask us any questions you have.
We’ll also be hosting two Zoom meetings so you can meet the team and ask questions :) Join us on either Tuesday 29th September or Tuesday 6th October at 4pm. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP and get access.
