Representing you

The Students' Union is here to represent your views so that your time studying at Royal Holloway is a positive and enjoyable experience. By being the collective voice of students we are able to tackle pressing issues, lobby for social change, and campaign on your behalf - using your views and opinions as guidance.

There are loads of different ways you can actively get involved, from becoming an academic rep and making changes on your course, through to engaging with our Union Workshops and having a direct say on the services we deliver.


Your Officers

Every year the student body elects four Sabbatical Officers to work full-time in the Students' Union for a year. They work on a range of issues relating to student life, listening to your thoughts and opinions while running campaigns and working with the Students' Union and the University to implement positive policy changes.
