What is a Halls Student Committee?
Each Halls of residence has a Halls’ Student Committee (HSC) that anyone can be a part of. Each HSC is made up of residents who work together to make sure that everyone has the best time whilst living in Halls.
What do the HSC's do?
HSC’s identify any issues and make sure that students opinions are heard at the University and at the Guild of Students. They also have a budget which can be used to improve and enhance the student experience and promote a feeling of community amongst residents of the hall.
The HSC meets via Zoom once a week. In these meetings you discuss any issues in halls or ideas you've had for campaigns or events. For the first sememster all activities must be online but we encourage all HSCs to be creative and come up with some new ideas.
Previous HSCs have organised: LGBT Awareness Week; Seasonal Events e.g. Easter Egg Hunts, Chinese New Year celebrations, Halloween and Christmas decorating; Charity events (e.g. Children in Need and Comic Relief fundraising)
You may want to try: Craft Workshops, Quizzes, Netflix Parties, Virtual Talent Shows, Murder Mystery's ...
Why should I do it?
Becoming a member of the HSC it is an excellent way to make new friends and represent your fellow students. The HSC provides plenty of opportunity to develop skills you may not work on in the classroom, for example problem solving, budgeting, leadership, time management, planning and communication.
