Why are you standing?: 

In high school, I was one of the Co-Presidents of the Debate Club, so I’m used to organizing events for large groups of people.

Like most of you here, I am not originally from the UK, so I know what it’s like to feel lonely, scared, and a little lost.

I’m interested in organizing regular events for residents that we can choose together—baking, taco nights, trivia, etc.

Having something fun to look forward to can get us out of our rooms and let us have a well-deserved break from our studies.

If we have regular meet-ups, it will also give us the chance to discuss any major issues we’re having with the building—any maintenance that needs doing, worries or complaints you might have, etc.

If elected, I would then take these issues and raise them with the Student Council as well as the relevant Student Housing leadership.

Regardless of if I get the position or not, I’m excited to be sharing space with so many new people. I’m always ready to make new friends and go on an adventure. If you need someone to chat to, or just want to say hi, I’m always here.

A vote for me is a vote for yourself.

From my experience living in Goldsmid House, I figured out there is room for improvement, a few changes that could make here a better place for everyone.

I know there are some problems. I know what you have been complaining about. I know what you want and what you need. If you VOTE me and come to me about issues you are facing within halls those complaints will be dealt with IMMEDIATELY.

Soo…

Let’s make our voices be heard.

Let’s make our hall a better place.

Let’s achieve our goals.

Truly, our hall is a nice place where students come from different cultural backgrounds meet. Me, personally, as an international student, I have been living in London for over 5 years. I know things could be tough when you first get into different cultures. We will work together to make our hall to be a more comfortable place for everybody to live in.

Improvements are made to be seen. If elected, I will make sure your voice be heard and every complaint is dealt straight away without any delay.

Vote Haiying Liang, and change is bound to happen.

My name is Morgan Stoner. I am running for Hall Representation at Goldsmid House.

My number one concern is for students to feel safe and secure in their own home. As an international student myself, I understand the importance of having a safe, comfortable home in an unfamiliar city.

Due to construction at Goldsmid, an “alcove” of sorts has been created right by the Goldsmid front entrance. This has led to an increased rough sleeper presence, and unfortunately, drug use. I have spoken to many other residents and we all agree: we cannot tolerate drug use, such as cocaine and heroin, on our front steps.

I already took measures to eradicate this problem. I spoke to UCL accommodation and Robert, the Goldsmid site manager. I filed multiple reports and even filed a complaint with the police regarding harassment taking place on the streets outside Goldsmid.

After my conversations with Goldsmid staff, security guards have been placed at the front of Goldsmid House!

I have already worked to make Goldsmid a safer place for residents to feel comfortable and secure. I will continue to do so as Goldsmid Hall Representative.

Please see my manifesto document for more information!

It will soon be one month since many of us moved to the Goldsmid house. I tell everyone that asks about my experience at Goldmsmid that the house is fantastic and this is true, but we can make it even better!

As the Hall Rep of our very diverse home, I will dedicate my year to ensuring that you have the best learning and living experience in London.

I have been fortunate to engage some of you on what living in Goldsmid has been like. Whether it is the poor network connection in your room, the need for more social activities that connect us to learn about our cultures, or the overarching need for a computer room that will make learning more accessible, we can have it all!

My priority is that you go in and out of Goldmsid a happy person because you are in a happy place, where the facilities are excellent and where a community is available to listen to you.

"Whatever you complain about should be solved", and this is how I plan to give you a memorable year as your Hall Rep!

Vote me and let us move this hall forward!

I am a friendly and outgoing person who is always ready to speak to you. It would be my pleasure to help you and discuss how to solve crucial issues, get to know you better, or just have a quick chat!

My main motivation is to:

> Organise frequent events for having fun with everyone

> Make people's lives easier by standing up for them

> Insist on more fridges and free pizzas

I will do my best to improve our student life at the Goldsmid House and make it an unforgettable experience!

This isn't my first time staying at Goldsmid. I know from previous years what it takes to be a great Hall Rep and I intend to couple that knowledge with the skills and contacts that I've assembled during my time here to offer the greatest experience that I possibly can!

The core of my campaign will centre around three key pledges which I consider to be of the utmost importance. These are as follows:

1. Be your voice and represent your views within our hall and the UCL Student Union.

2. Work alongside Shelter and other charitable organisations to offer assistance to the unfortunate homeless individuals that take refuge around our building.

3. Ensure that we reduce our Carbon Footprint and environmental impact through cooperation with the UCL Climate Action Society and the abolition of single use plastics at events to name but a few measures.

I believe these objectives to be unequivocally achievable and deliverable through hard work and dedication. However, they are far from my only goals as Hall Rep. Notable others are listed below:

- Minimise the disruption from construction works.

- Establish a TFL update screen within reception.

- Organise on site events such as film and gaming evenings.
