Why are you standing?: 

As I have lived in UCL Halls for two years by now, I am very eager to use my experience to make living in Halls as pleasant as possible for new comers and other students. If I am elected, I wish to help every hall improve as much as possible. My priorities would be to focus on halls that are the oldest and have less student satisfaction. I would like to see that all of the students living in halls have good opportunities in terms of activities and facilities. I believe I am suitable for this role because I acknowledge that all residents are deserving equal, affordable, and good service. I am eager to communicate and negotiate with authorities, make surveys to find out what is working and what is not, and come up with a range of activities that reflect the diversity in the halls.

Why are you standing?: 

I'm standing for Halls Rep because I think the rent at UCL is too damn high, whilst conditions in halls are poor.

We need a halls rep who is able and willing to utilise the UCL halls rep system to organise collective action against these issues and any further issues that may come up for students in halls, as well as transform this system and the housing advice service to ensure that sustainable, long term support for students in halls is provided by the SU.

I'm an experienced housing activist, whose been involved in the UCL Cut The Rent campaign for two years now, and helped organise a rent strike at Max Rayne and Ifor Evans last year over poor conditions.

On top of that, I was also the External Accommodation Officer for 2017/18, so I know what being a student housing officer entails and how to perform the role effectively.

I've also assisted many student tenants at UCL with compensation claims, and just recently helped win back two months of rent for a UCL tenant.

Furthermore, I am an active member in London Renters' Union, and am currently involved in setting up a Haringey Branch of the union.
