Become an Activity Rep and plan your own activities!

Become an Activity Rep and run social activities for you and your friends in the residences. We'll throw in all the stuff you need for FREE! Free food! Yes please! Free decorations!!  Yes please!!  The latest blockbuster DVDs!!! Yes please!!!

Plus you'll have a great addition to your HEAR (Higher Education Achievment Report) and CV and the opportunity to meet new people!

What would I do as an Activity Rep?

  • You will be able to run your own, fully-funded activities for the students in your area, whether it's a movie night, an off-campus trip or a baking session in your flat. Come up with your own ideas and we will provide you with resources for free and we'll support you in the planning of your activity. Here are some examples of the kinds of things you could do...

Food nights...


Quiz nights...


Seasonal activities...


Off-campus trips...


Games tournaments...


.....and many more!

  • You will get to work with other Activity Reps and Residence Life Mentors. You can either plan activities on your own or you can get together with others to create bigger events.
  • Residence Life staff put on large-scale events throughout the year and you'll have the opportunity to help out at these events and invite your friends.
  • As a favour from us, we will give you the opportunity to attend exclusive leadership sessions so that you can develop your skills even further! 

Why should I become an Activity Rep?

  • You'll make a difference by putting on community-building activities to enhance your own and others' student experience.
  • The Activity Rep role is HEAR (Higher Education Achievement Report) accredited so if you organise a set number of activities across a semester, the role will be added to your HEAR. 
  • You'll have your brilliant ideas heard and you can be sure that the activities you are putting on are what you, the students, want!
  • Develop activity planning skills and attend exclusive leadership sessions just for Activity Reps (certainly a CV-booster!).
  • Be a step ahead if you are interested in becoming a Residence Life Mentor next year.
  • You'll have regular contact with with other Activity Reps at socials and team meetings - even more opportunity to make friends!
