Zhan Soo

Why are you standing?: 

I have held numerous leadership positions in my previous schools and I am confident that I will make Langton Close and Frances Gardner House a home away from home.

My priorities if I get elected as the representative would be to fight for the reduction in the high rent for both the houses. Both Langton Close and Frances Gardner are quite far away from UCL but the rents are still high. I will definitely fight for the reduction in rent for all types of rooms.

Besides, I would campaign for a subsidy by the houses or UCL for the laundry services provided by the houses. The laundry service at the moment is quite costly for students and a subsidy or a reduction in price will definitely ease our financial burden.

I would also set up in-house gyms as the gyms in London are costly. A few rooms within the building can definitely be turned into gyms in which students can use during their free time to keep fit and to release their stress after intense study sessions.

Lastly, I would like to add more recycling bins in kitchens of every unit so that it is easier for us to recycle our rubbish. Go Green UCL!

Why are you standing?: 

Securing a decent accommodation in London can be tough – and expensive. Admittedly, UCL Halls represent a fair, cheaper alternative to the often unattainable, privately rented accommodation. Nonetheless, especially in comparison to university accommodation around the country, the UCL Halls rent still stands well above average. Therefore, I believe it is only fair for us students to get a good value for our money– a safe, clean and warm environment for us to live and study. These are the values that I would champion as the Langton Close and Frances Gardner Halls Rep. However, what is even more important than these sketchy ideas, is what you guys think and how you see the spaces that you live in. That is why I promise – should you decide to put your trust in me – to be there for you throughout the year and listen to your ideas, complaints and wishes, doing my best to put them in place and communicate them to those in charge. If there is anything you would like to discuss or talk about, just come visit me on the 3rd floor, flat F, room 5 in Langton or simply send me an e-mail at grosman.alfa@gmail.com. Thank you!

Lili Naómi Zemplényi

Why are you standing?: 

I am committed to providing an excellent representation of the Frances Gardner House and Langton Close Student Houses and raising awareness of the students' interests throughout the year. My dedication to representation can be illustrated by my previous experiences in the field. In Hungary, in high school, I have served as a Student President for two years, representing students and protecting their rights. Due to my commitment as President, I was elected as a Representative of the Capital to the National Student Parliament speaking up for the fellow students in front of the Ministry of Human Capacities. Moreover, I was the Spokesperson of the Hungarian delegation to the European Youth Parliament, Strasbourg in 2015, overseeing the work of the deputation. In connection with this, I became a Junior Ambassador of the European Parliament, promoting the European culture, history and our common values, which makes us united and diverse within the European Union.

I am confident that my previous experiences make me able to appropriately represent Frances Gardner House and Langton Close in the 2018/19 academic year.

Why are you standing?: 

As cliché as it sounds, I want to represent you, the students living in Langton Close and Frances Gardner, so that our voices are heard by UCL’s Student Union. You and I live here, and we should be comfortable and happy! If you have problems with your living arrangement, it’s important that you have a person who will advocate for you to ensure that your concerns are addressed as soon as possible. As hall representative, I will do my best to be that person for you and for the other students living here.

But I wouldn’t want to talk just about negative issues! Like the rest of you, I came to UCL not only to study, but also to make friends and have fun. I think it’s important that we get to know each other within Langton Close and Frances Gardner, and also that we meet students living in other halls. If you have any ideas for social events—parties or competitions between halls, maybe?—let’s discuss! I want to enjoy my time at UCL, and if you vote for me, I promise to work hard as your representative so that all of us have the best possible university experience!
