RUSU President – Tristan Spencer

I would love the chance to enhance YOUR student experience

Throughout my four years at Reading, I have been involved with JCR, course representation, ASOS/giffgaff student marketing, Student Voice and have been President for charity Phab and the English society.

Now, I believe I have the experience, the passion and the vision to create A Union For All: empowering students and making positive, noticeable change.

A Union For All

  • Unity – Unify students, include all voices, integrate international/postgraduate students, champion liberation and introduce “Students of Reading” campaign.
  • Engagement – Introduce a RUSU app, direct student opinion polls and improve democratic processes.
  • Support and Recreation – Introduce termly student festival, relaxation zones on campus and termly puppy days.


Unity – A Union that is inclusive, fair and student-focussed.

  • Focus on uniting students against prevalent issues, including rising tuition fees, affordable accommodation and mental health.
  • Introduce a Students of Reading campaign, displaying life stories and achievements of students to inspire us all to succeed.
  • Focus on inclusion of all political voices, international/postgraduate students and liberation campaigns.

Engagement – A Union that listens and represents.

  • Introduce a RUSU app, so buying tickets/voting is quicker and easier, as well as making news and events more accessible.
  • Introduce simple direct student opinion polls, so students can directly voice their opinions on issues.
  • Reform and improve democratic processes such as Student Voice and Change It.

Support and Recreation – A Union that supports, entertains and enriches.

  • Introduce a termly student festival at Union celebrating RUSU, where students choose the theme and acts.
  • Create relaxation zones on campus including massage chairs, sleeper pods, bean bags, mood lighting and refreshment facilities.
  • Introduce termly puppy days for a bit of paws-itivity when we are all feeling a little ruff.
