Student Halls Rep.

Living in University accommodation can be every kind of experience rolled into one. You can love it one day and then suddenly need a break the next. The Student Life Exec (SLE) wants to fully support the student voice in Halls & will have focused campaigns and projects to support that aim. The Hall Rep is a student volunteer who lives in and represents students living in University or University-partnered accommodation. They represent these students at the SLE and other forums or groups.
