About Me

Hi! I’m Hannah and I’m your SU President for 2023/24.

As the previous Vice President Societies and Sport, working with students has been the highlight of my job. I am so excited to continue representing student voice with such a brilliant Sabbatical Officer team. 

My aims for 2023/24

Student Safety

I know how important it is to feel safe on a night out so I will be progressing the work with the Security Review, ensuring feedback is acted on. Other measures such as spiking awareness training for security and increased safety messaging in SU venues will also be in place.

Campus Facilities

I will ensure the University invests in relevant projects that will positively contribute to the student experience. I also plan to work with the Disabled Students Community Officer and Commuting Students Community Officer to identify how campus can be a more accessible and safer place.

GP Surgery & Wellbeing Services

Another one of my manifesto aims is to work with the GP surgery and Wellbeing team to ensure students are receiving the right support.

Throughout the year, I want to promote a range of wellbeing campaigns such as Sexual Health Awareness and Guidance, Sexual Harassment, and Alcohol Awareness Week.

Your Education

I will ensure there is transparency for students when it comes to academic misconduct and their academic rights. I will also stand up for students’ interests regarding the Extenuating Circumstances (ECs) policy so that it fully supports students both in the short and long term.

I’m sure I will also be involved in a range of other exciting projects to better student experience. If you want to be included in a campaign or have any ideas to improve life at Royal Holloway, please reach out to

And keep an eye on my socials and blogs to see what I’m up to!

The Role

The Students’ Union President is the Chair of the Board of Trustees, sits on the highest decision making committee at Royal Holloway, College Council, and is the figurehead of the Students’ Union.

They lead on key campaigns and are heavily involved in all major strategic projects that will directly impact the lives of students on campus.
