How to stand

Nominations will open on Friday 16 September at 10:00 and close on Sunday 9 October at 23:59. All positions available for members to stand for will be listed directly on each student group’s webpage on the RHSU website. To nominate yourself, all you have to do is click ‘Stand’, complete the information, and submit your nomination.

Please ensure you read the information around data protection and the terms of conditions of running in the elections, and follow the necessary steps. If you decide to stand, make sure you nominate yourself ahead of the deadline to ensure any issues that may arise in the nominations process can be settled by the Student Opportunities team.

  1. Log in to the RHSU website.
  2. Ensure you have bought a membership to the group you wish to stand for.
  3. Click on the position you wish to run for on the student group’s webpage.
  4. From here, you will be able to upload a photo and manifesto - this will highlight who you are and why you want to run. This information will be available for members to view when voting and is a prime opportunity to explain why you would be the best person for the role.
  5. When asked for an email address, please use your Royal Holloway student account, rather than personal emails.
