#GloHerts VP Community!

Hello, my name is Gloria Opara, a Biomedical Science student with a passion for people. Having been in UH for over 3 years, I have seen and experienced the changes that have been made to improve student life. I am here not only to further this but to instil a sense of unity and equality between all students in various walks of life. I plan on doing this by:

  • Engaging students with local residents
    • By encouraging societies to hold events in local places, for example the local café or library, to include the community and develop a sense of acceptance for students.
  • Creating partnerships with local businesses
    • To make services more affordable for students, encouraging more business to offer student discounts and expand their range of services.
    • I also plan on creating partnerships with transport companies in the local community to make it easier and cheaper for commuting students to get to and from the university.
  • Enhancing international student experience
    • Introducing a more inclusive welcome week and hosting more activities for international students, giving them a chance to mingle with more local students.
    • Developing a financial aid scheme for international students via introduction of a hardship fund and more scholarships and grants.
  • Making the process of off-campus accommodation easier for students
  • By stopping unreasonable demands from landlords and estate agents for both home and international students.


  • Expanding the De Havilland campus
  • I plan to introduce a wellbeing and medical centre on the dehav campus, for easily accessible healthcare and advice, suited to tackle all kinds of problems from physical, emotional and mental health.

I look forward to making your years here as rewarding and easy as possible, so vote for me, Gloria Opara for VP community!
