Our students are the face of the SU and make sure your voice is heard throughout
your time at university.

Each year, full-time Student Officers are elected to represent you and aim to improve your Hallam experience. Some of our previous student officer achievements have included securing improved funding for student mental health support, extending library opening times and reducing printing costs. As well as Student Officers, your SU also elects Part-time and Department Reps who promote your student academic interests to help improve the student experience for all. In fact, there is a dedicated Students’ Union representative at all levels.

Your 2020/21 Full-Time Student Officer Team

Earlier this year, we consulted with students about changing our officer roles to include new officers to represent students within each of the three academic colleges at Hallam. This decision was made after students told us they wanted to see more academic representation from the SU. Our students voted strongly in favour of change, which now means that we have an officer model, unlike any other students’ union which includes a president, three college officers, a sports and wellbeing officer and an international students’ officer.
