Student Group Elections.

We exist for one simple reason: to make student life better at Royal Holloway. It’s this vision that guides everything we do as an organisation and we firmly believe that with the right people and a commitment to our values we can deliver huge change on campus.

Being part of a committee is a fulfilling experience, and while it may look like a lot of work, we promise you, it’s definitely worth getting involved.

How to stand

Nominations will open on Monday 15 April at 09:00 and close on 3 May at 12:00. All positions available for members to stand will be listed directly on each student group’s webpage on the RHSU website. To nominate yourself, all you have to do it 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. Unfortunately, we are not able to accept applications after nominations have closed. Please ensure that if you decide to stand that you nominate yourselves ahead of the deadline to ensure any issues that may arise in the nominations process can be settled by the Student Opportunities team.

  1. Login 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. Upload a photograph and your details. When asked for an email address, please use your Royal Holloway student account, rather than personal emails.
  5. 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.
