We exist for one reason: to make student life better at Royal Holloway. That’s where your Sabbatical Officers come in: students elected to represent your needs in a full time paid role for one year (either as a break in their studies or immediately after graduating) and lead on all aspects of how we are run. With elections season now underway, this is your chance to make sure your voice is heard, either as a candidate or by giving your vote in March.
Want to drive change and make a difference by being the voice of students on campus? Anyone can stand to be elected for one of our five full-time, paid Sabbatical Officer roles, including you. We also elect part-time Student Trustees, a College Council Rep and NUS Delegates who represent the University at a national level.
This is your opportunity to have your say on who will represent your interests as a student at Royal Holloway. Voting is really easy and is all done online through this website. The bonus of voting is that those who are elected form the backbone of changes that happen on campus, such as the 24/7 opening of the back gate. Among the different aspects of student life, voting has always been the best way in which you can make a genuine impact.
Being a Sabbatical Officer comes with many perks. Aside from being a full-time paid role, you will be able to represent and lead the interests of over 10,000 students. Your ideas that may seem intangible at first, can become a reality. You will be sitting on the most senior committees at University, right up to College Council and you'll build networks with senior figures in the University including the Principal.
