Clarissa Westwood
Hello, I am Clarissa Westwood studying MSc Crime and Forensic Science at UCL. I understand the difficulty in securing favourable and affordable accommodation in London, as well as adapting to environmental changes. I advocate to share this burden with you and provide you the care you deserve. Studying is demanding and we don’t need housing and bill problems on top. I will work closely with student advice to provide legal expertise and #cuttherent campaign with the ultimate aim to provide all students with a safe home away from home.
Having lived in both student and private accommodation myself, I’ll be able to provide advice on landlord queries; how to pay the correct bills and additional tips on how to rent. I would like to extend my services by creating a forum for your voice to be heard, on any housing queries and feedback, this platform will also allow students to look for flatmates for the next academic year.
If elected, I will also be hosting weekly drop-ins at the Student Centre. This allows you to talk to me in person as well as meet someone new! Individual appointments can also be set up to address any personal/housing issue. (I.e. Housing for the following year; Angst/Tension with flatmates; Dealing with Academic stress; Loneliness and mental health issues; Sudden need to switch housing etc.)
I’m here to help, there’s no matter too small! I would be easily contactable via iMessage; WhatsApp; Instagram; Facebook messenger.
Mariyam Shoora Shafeeq
Hello, my name is Shoora.

I am running for your external accommodation officer this year to fight the major issues we face as students moving into intercollegiate halls.
With me as your accommodation officer, gone are the days of over-paying for subpar accommodation and unattended maintenance work in your halls of residence for ages, while you struggle with your day-to-day tasks because of them.

If I am made your external accommodation officer my main areas of focus to bring improvements will be:
1. Decreasing the rent of accommodation, I aim to work hand-in-hand with the UCL decrease the movement.
2. Work to improve the maintenance services, we too often have to deal with faulty facilities with no solution brought about!
3. I will work to improve the services available at the intercollegiate halls.
4. Implement strict policies for inclusivity and diversity.
5. Support finding your way around the city the first few days.
6. Fight to make intercollegiate students as much a part of the community as students residing at UCL accommodation.
7. For international students I aim to TRY and introduce airport transfer services either for free or for a price (below the average you would pay).

Any other suggestions on improvements from you are always welcome, I’m here to assist you so that you have a better time at intercollegiate halls and to make your experience worthwhile. I assure you, I will always be reachable and responsive to your concerns.

If you have any clarifications or requests don't be shy to just come talk to me when you see me in person if not you can reach me at this email below.

I am a resident of The Garden Halls and believe that we who live in intercollegiate halls through UCL should be equally represented in our Students' Union just like our fellow students who live in UCL Halls and private accommodation that UCL has a partnership with. I am therefore standing to advance the wellbeing of my fellow hallmates at Gardens and other intercollegiate halls. As External Accommodation Officer, I also pledge to advocate on the behalf of other students who live in private accommodation.
