My name is Gemma and I’m this year’s President at your Students' Union. The Students’ Union is a charity based on campus whose job is to represent the students at this University across a variety of issues. As a student here at Surrey you are automatically a member of the Students’ Union, meaning we are here to help and represent you!
As President, I lead our team of Officers here at the Students' Union. As a team, we are here to represent your views as students and make sure your voice is heard, whether that be academic issues, accommodation, facilities – everything related to your experience here.
There are 5 full-time Officers (a.k.a. Sabbs) elected each year and my team is made up of VP Voice, Ajay Ajimobi, VP Activity, Lizzie Rodulson, VP Support Sarah Surget and VP Community, Amina Nagwamma.
We all feel passionately that all Surrey students should have the best experience possible, and so we spend each day representing students to the University in committees and meetings, leading events and campaigns, supporting our sports clubs and societies, and so much more.
When you have a problem with the University that you can't resolve yourself, we are here to support you and help fight your corner.
Our offices are located in the SU building, below Rubix, please don't hesitate to come and see us if you ever have an issue - or just to say "Hi!". You can also email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
From all of us at the Union, have a great year here at Surrey!
