Hi everyone! I’m Kate and I am your Students’ Union President.
My role is to represent your views to the University and lobby for changes to improve student life at
Royal Holloway. I also have a large role in the Students’ Union’s governance, overseeing
many of the things that go on here at the SU.
Engagement is a significant part of my role and something I will be focusing on more this year. We
are the representative voice of students on campus, and we want to make sure that you as students
feel represented by your SU and feel a part of what we do.
I also work on various campaigns lobbying for change that matters to you. This year I will be looking
at inclusivity, sustainability, and supporting students with any potential upcoming changes
associated with the Coronavirus pandemic.
I will be leading a key piece of research this year, launching a policy inquiry into student housing.
This will produce a Student Voice Report detailing areas of improvement within housing support that
we can use to better support you and lobby the University for change.
If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch!
