Hello, I’m Rebecca, your Student Engagement Coordinator, and you can talk to me about getting the best out of life in your neighbourhood. It’s my goal to help you create a happy and safe place to live during your time as a student.
The Halls Liaisons and I love to hear your ideas on how to make that happen, to give us your ideas email me or add me on Facebook Rebecca Cobb SU Halls.
Our team goal is a student neighbourhood that is welcoming to all. Our get-togethers are open to Home, EU and International students, and we’d really love to hear from you if you have a great idea for an event. We want a global community where you can share your culture, improve your language skills, and make friends for life. Linlin is our current International Engagement Assistant.
If all this has you excited to play a part, we’d love you to become an HSU Neighbour. You’d be part of a supportive team working to make life better for your student neighbourhood. But what would you be doing? How about:
So apart from making friends, gaining experience, building your CV, and learning new skills – what’s in it for you?! Dependent on how much time you can commit to the scheme throughout the academic year you can earn one of three certificates:
These will be presented to you at the SU Awards, and you might even find yourself nominated for Neighbour of the Year.
But wait! There’s more! If you log 20 hours during term one, you can earn a free ticket to Hudlive Presents in January!
SOUNDS BUSY! HOW WILL I BE SUPPORTED?
You’ll be part of a close team who are encouraged to ask first if in doubt – you never need to feel that you’re on your own. In addition, there are regular peer support events organised by the Students’ Union that you can attend. It’s a great opportunity to broaden your knowledge about higher education and how the University and the Students’ Union work.
