Get Involved

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 tons of different ways you can actively get involved, from becoming an academic rep and making change on your course through to attending one of our Union Workshops and having a say on the acts we book for Summer Ball and loads, loads more.


Union Workshop

As well as leading our campaigning and representation work, we also think it’s important that students have a say on the services we provide – shaping what we do and how we do it.

Student Executives

We want students to collaborate more effectively on key issues, so we’ve introduced three Student Executives - committees of students responsible for the development, scrutiny and maintenance of policies and plans.

Student Collectives

A platform for underrepresented groups to have their voices heard. As well as organising events and campaigns, they receive funding and work with the Union to secure the general interests and rights of students that self-define into the relevant group.
