Welcome to Homerton!! I hope you enjoy the next few weeks settling in. I’m the Vice-President External on the HUS this year. Basically, that means I liaise between our students’ union, and the university student union, CUSU. I’m always on facebook if you ever want to message me about any ideas you have.
Hi I’m Lucy, and I’ll be your Academic Affairs & Liaison Officer for this year. My role includes organising and overseeing the College families, open days and academic interviews at Homerton. I also bridge the gap between the student body and academic staff, helping to resolve any academic issues that may arise. If you have any academic concerns, please don’t hesitate to get in contact: email@example.com
I’m Bryn Porter, your Female Welfare Officer. You’ll see me around college a lot, or biking back and forth between Homerton and the Sidgwick site – do come over and say hi!
I’m here for you when you need information on sexual safety, mental health, and the support that’s available, or when you just want someone to chat to. Me and my male welfare buddy, Leo, will be organizing drop-in sessions and various welfare related activities throughout the year. Please come along and enjoy yourselves – we love to meet new people, and we want to make this a relaxed and fun year for you!
I’m Anita and I’m this year’s sponsorship officer for the HUS. It’s my job to try and gain us sponsorship from businesses to support our student services, sports, societies and ,of course, the may ball! I hope you all enjoy your year!
Welcome to Homerton and congratulations on getting in!
My name is Tim and I am a third year economist and the current Vice President Internal of the HUS. That means I am responsible for the inner workings of this union and therefore big parts of your student life. Please feel free to approach me with any concerns or questions!
Hi, I’m Eireann (Air-rin) and I’ll be your Target and Access Officer this year. My job is to
promote Cambridge University to prospective students regardless of background. I’ll be able to let you know how you can help out with events such as open days and shadowing schemes. You can find me in the buttery, probably eating a flapjack, or trying to burn the calories off by hula hooping around Homerton gardens
I’m a second year geographer who likes to spend a lot of his time at the boat club and my role is to ensure that all sport at Homerton is as organised and inclusive as possible. It is also my aim to raise the profile of Homerton sport by ensuring that all teams have the necessary equipment to train properly for the highest levels of inter-collegiate competition; I am therefore very eager to hear any suggestions you may have on this subject.
