Vice President Societies & Sport

About Me

I’m Hannah and I am the VP Societies and Sport.

I’m so excited for the upcoming year and can’t wait to start working with students and all at RHUL. As VP Socs and Sport, I will be a representative for the University at the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) and NUS conferences as well as the Chair of Societies, Sports and Opportunities Executive. I will also be working on a variety of campaigns throughout the year such as This Girl Can.

My plans for 2022/23:

  • Increasing participation through incentives
  • Providing limitless opportunities
  • Working closely with the VP Wellbeing & Diversity to raise awareness of stigmatised subjects through student groups
  • Finding alternative payment methods such as pay as you go or monthly instalments
  • Ensuring an equal amount of publicity and support for student groups
  • Closely supporting recently established groups and ones with multiple committee changes

I know how essential student groups are to student life on and off campus. Therefore, I endeavour to make sure students can get the most out of their time whilst at Royal Holloway.

The Role

The VP Societies & Sport has joint overall responsibility for developing the support the Students' Union offers to student groups on campus.

They work closely with the University's Active Lifestyle & Sport department to build relationships that aid the development of sporting activity on campus. This can include lobbying for improved facilities, high quality equipment and ensuring all students have access to different ways of keeping active.

They lead on campaigns and activities related to student health and wellbeing through sport.

Sitting on the Union’s Board of Trustees, VP Societies & Sport spends time working closely with students on campaign delivery while ensuring the Union is delivering on its strategic plan.
