Halls Of Residence Committee
The Halls Committee represents the views and concerns of all Strathclyde students in campus accommodation to the University directly and also through the Students’ Association. Its role is to campaign on issues important to and affecting halls residents
such as the quality of halls and student welfare whilst organising events for the halls community. It is run by students, for students.
What do Halls volunteers do?
The committee meets fortnightly to raise any issues relating to the running of halls and what it is like for those who live there. At these meetings the reps should feedback what students’ concerns are on the
quality of their residences and the service they receive from the university. The committee is in charge of its own budget and uses this to fund campaigns and socials with the University and Students’ Union.
Foremost reps must engage with students living in halls!
What experience is needed and what commitment is expected?
Training will be provided for the team immediately after its election so enthusiasm only is needed, no specific experience is required. The time commitment is a minimum of two hours for attendance fortnightly at meetings with an equal amount spent engaging with students in advance. “Overtime” will be required should the committee be running an event or campaign but committee members choose whether to participate.
Ultimately you get out what you put in!
What resources and support is available?
The Halls Committee receive a budget from the Students' Association. They
also have access to office space and resources on Level 7 of the Union Building. Support is directly available from the Vice President Services and the Student Advisors. The University Department of Residence & Catering provide all other support you will need through the Village Office.
