Why are you standing?: 

Student interests must stay at the core of the Students’ Union!

I’ve spent a quarter of my life so far as a student of UCL and I’ve spent most of that time working for the Students’ Union. I’ve poured pints, lead Zero Tolerance workshops, and trained Academic Reps but now I want to do something more.

I want to spend my 7th year at UCL making sure the Students’ Union keep students’ interests at its core.


Continue to reform Union democratic processes so that students can more easily affect change.

Increase transparency of Students’ Union processes.

Review Part-Time Officer Role support: look into how all of our Part-Time officers can be better supported


Improve student facilities: more microwaves and kettles around campus!

Increase sustainability of Union cafes and bars.

Oversee final stages of 25 Gordon Street refurbishment, ensuring students are satisfied with the new Phineas.


Address student concerns that many don’t feel like a ‘part of UCL’.

Ensure all 43,000 students have easy access to a complete listing of all Union facilities and services.

Make it easier for students to engage with the Union, helping more students find jobs, advice and volunteering opportunities.

Why are you standing?: 

Hi, my name is Chris, and I’m your independent candidate for the position of Democracy, Operations and Community Officer. Years of activism and advocacy experience has prepared me to strengthen and simplify relationships between the Union, students and the public.

As a European national who has lived in the UK for 11 years, I will support EU students in the Brexit transitions. As this year's elected Faculty Rep Social & Historical Sciences, I am campaigning to make us a greener more sustainable institution and greater freedoms for Tier 4 students.

My research into public engagement will enable UCL projects to reach broader audiences and affect positive social change. My skills as an art and anthropology student will allow us to explore creative, user-friendly methods of sharing valuable information.

As a longtime support worker to students with disabilities, I am ready to advocate on behalf of any student(s) who are not receiving fair treatment. I take all claims of discrimination and hate crime seriously and will strive to make UCL a safe space for all.

I am running independent of partisan, sectarian interests or block voting. Thanks for voting with your values and helping to create an equal experience for all.
