Hi everyone,

It’s that time of the year where you have the chance to vote for next year’s JCR Support Team. The nominations are in, and campaigning has begun! The positions available in this election period are President, Vice-President Internal, Vice-President External, and Treasurer. The candidates and their manifestos are as follows:

President -




 Vice-President Internal -



Vice-President External - 


Treasurer -

James BUSH


Head down to the Griffin this Tuesday (25th) to hear what the candidates have to say about their plans for next year. Each candidate will give a short speech, summarising their manifestos and providing more information on why they deserve your vote. You will then be able to ask them any questions you might have, or challenge anything you don’t agree with! This is a great opportunity to get a debate going, and to make sure that you use your vote wisely when voting opens at 10pm that evening. See you there!

P.S. The election period is very short, and whilst it can be annoying to see the College plastered with posters, we’d be grateful if you could resist from taking any down until the elections are over. If you are unhappy with the location of a poster, feel free to message me (fjd28) and I’ll look into it as swiftly as possible.

Hi Guys,

We are back to normal now, with the office open between 5 PM – 7 PM on Mon-Fri.. I’m down here now and we now have Matriculation photos for all those that ordered them before the end of last term, so feel free to come down and grab them!

Matriculation Photos Collection & Gym Inductions

Hey everyone. A couple of very quick things:

1. Anyone who ordered Matriculation photos at the end of last term – they have now arrived in the HUS Office and are available for collection. Please note that ordinary office hours start next week, so if you’re collecting them before Monday then be sure to stop by between 10am-2pm.

2. Gym inductions – for greater flexibility, we’ve created a rotary system for this term. If you require an induction, you just have to contact the inductor working that week, who will then arrange a time with you. The inductor for Week 1 (16th-22nd Jan) is T. McGonagle, who can be contacted via Hermes at tm508. The complete rota is as follows -

WEEK 1 (16th – 22nd Jan): T. McGonagle (tm508)

WEEK 2 (23rd – 29th Jan): A. Cheung (acwc3)

 WEEK 3 (30th Jan – 5th Feb): M. Naydenov (mn388)

The Meeting will be at 6:30 pm in the Griffin!
