Why are you standing?: 

Uniquely, for various reasons John Tovell House is my home for the duration of my studies. Some students may know me - I am friendly and proactive in the UCL community, I answer questions on UCLove FB page, am moderator on UCL Lost and Found FB group and created Chemistry’s Moodle Welcome page.

Not all Hall Representatives carry out their duties effectively. When JTH kitchen was flooded by the bathroom, I dealt with the issue. I dealt with blocked loos, broken lights, slamming doors, leaking windows, wobbling fridge and damaged furniture – frustratingly, I was NOT the Hall Rep.

During my Internship, I conducted a review of 50 papers on student retainment, so I know how the transition to university may be made easier. My initial thoughts on improvements -

• Better sense of community. There are 195 of us; I would create a platform for easier communication - we are neighbours but some of us never meet!

• More active social calendar; lacking a common room we don’t mingle much. We need more events (and a secret Santa)!

• Soap in the dispensers! Pretty basic I know, but there has NEVER been soap in the JTH bathrooms! Why?!

Hi! I’m Andrea, coming from Slovakia and studying Information Management for Business.

Since I was in the leadership position in a school business company during my high school studies and am running a project helping children all over Slovakia, I believe to have the ability to take upon a challenge to be the Hall Rep for Arthur Tattersall and John Tovell Houses.

As diverse as our community is, it deserves the best service out there!

I’ll, therefore, advocate all of your interests and propose the reduction of rent in our accommodation to the Residence Office. Besides that, I’ll ensure everybody can access working appliances (including iron!) and help you solve any legal problems.

In order to strengthen our community, I encourage you to propose ideas for social events or improve my ideas: Explore London, National Evenings, Eat&Drink, Quizzes and Scavenger Hunts, Parties, Social Studying, Movie nights (to learn more, check the additional document).

As a bonus, I’ll soon set up an online system providing every resident with vouchers for free stuff and discounts in a variety of shops every day!

Feel free to contact me via Facebook, Instagram (@adkaulicna) or email (andrea.ulicna.19@ucl.ac.uk).

Why are you standing?: 

Back in Malaysia, my home country, we have a very diverse nation just like in UCL and London. John Tovell and Arthur Tattersall have students from all over the world and I know how lonely it can be to live away from home and the food you love. As a family, everyone has lots to offer and below are a few objectives I would like to achieve if elected:

1. Celebrate Diversity and Inclusion – celebrate festivals and make traditional foods from different countries (eg. Oktoberfest, Christmas Dinners, Chinese New Year Hotpot)

2. Home Away From Home – activities together every week (eg. Hiking, Picnics, Gardening, Bubble Tea Making, Holiday Abroad)

3. Facilities and Equipment – More fridges! White/Table lights! You name it! We fix it!

4. Your Ear and Voice– If you ever need someone to talk to, I will always be available at 95G1. Drop me a message on FB or Instagram if you would like to meet up, or just to have a cup of coffee (or tea!) outside!

With past experiences as Head Girl and House Captain, I am a very reliable and responsible person. You can expect a friendly, pro-active and organised hall representative so vote for me!

Why are you standing?: 

“The magic thing about home is that it feels good to leave, and it feels even better to come back.”

Every year, students from all around the world come to UCL with one thing in common: they all must leave their homes and look for new ones.

My name is Maria-Alexandra Ciocan and I am one of those students; I believe that every person living in Arthur Tattersall & John Tovell Houses should have the chance to find a second home here.

Therefore, I stand for…

..Equality! Negotiating fair rent fees is my main concern for this year. We should all get good sleep at night (eh, eh, mattresses, showers!) and be able to cook our food in clean kitchens.

… Respect! We’re all under the same roof so…let’s break the ice during fun Saturday afternoons. Roommates’ Competition Night, Decoration Contests or Kudos Boxes are just some of the things we could do together.

….Communication! Speak up for yourself and your flat mates by sharing ideas, suggestions or complaints about the place you live in. After all, it’s your home too!

Maria Ciocan – maria.ciocan.19@ucl.ac.uk – because sometimes, uni life feels like losing your mom in the supermarket for 3 years.

I would love to be YOUR Hall Representative!

London can be quite an overwhelming place and make you feel lonely at times – I want to create meaningful spaces where everyone feels heard, respected and at home.

As a mediator and your representative, I want to hear all your concerns, suggestions and queries you have about living in halls – and am always happy to have a chat!

To start fostering our sense of community and to get to know each other, here are a couple of ideas I’d like to implement if elected:

1. Let’s get board games for the common areas at AT and plants and herbs for our communal gardens at JT!

2. Let’s have regular cooking events, game nights and outings – so that we will know each other’s faces by the end of this term!

3. Let’s label our recycling bins properly! I know this might sound less exciting – but we can make this a teambuilding activity too!

I am excited to hear about your ideas and feedback!

Love,

Lea

Why are you standing?: 

Hello everyone! I’m Tina-Maria and I decided to run for Hall Rep. Without further ado, my manifesto!

Firstly, I believe that social experience in university is vital, so I plan to organise more social events and gatherings. After all, we spend the most time with the people in our accommodation. We can bond over board games, quiz, movie and sport-watching nights. The lack of common rooms and the chilly weather are preventing us from having a universal space for meetings but a system with rotating kitchens or booking UCL rooms is completely reasonable. Picnics and other outside activities such as hiking trips to Epping Forest or group jogging sessions are great as well. Also, London presents us with the perfect opportunity for sightseeing tours.

Secondly, all of us would like to have comfortable living conditions, so if elected I will endeavour to ensure all issues are dealt with swiftly and smoothly. I also intend to foster a close friendly relationship with the cleaning staff who are so important to our comfort - no more lack of soap in the toilets 😀!

I am looking forward to your suggestions for more social activities and improvements and a great year ahead!

Hey guys! I’m Flo in Flat 115. We’ve only been here a few weeks, but we can all agree that there are things that make Gower Street houses great, and other things not so much.

What we love is seeing everyone’s face around free food during organised events. We love our common pres. We love our international community. What we don’t love is some houses lacking a common room. We don't love hearing complains of cockroaches in the basement. Not being able to wash/dry or clothes when the machines are full. Lacking recyclable bins for plastic.

I’m here because I want more <3, and less :(. Movie nights, multi-cultural dinners and fun picnics are of the many things I would organize, as I did as elected student representative for two years. I will also make the halls more comfortable and fix daily life inconveniences and issues, through innovative ideas (eg. storing other people’s washed/dry laundry in extra appropriate boxes) and negotiation. I also want to hear your ideas and queries, whenever you have them. Contact me on any social media, and expect a quick response.

See you next Tuesday at 5pm in front of 117, with some free crepes!
