The Orbital is the official publication of the Students’ Union of Royal Holloway, University of London (SURHUL). We release one 40 page magazine every month and distribute these around campus, as well as handing them out personally to students and taking them to various campus events. We also post regular updated to our website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

We aim to provide the students of Royal Holloway with up-to-date news on a local, national and international level, as well as offering them the best of whats happening on their campus and in the local area. The magazine is divided into six sections, all of which take contributions from any student who wants to get involved. These sections are News, Comment, Features, Lifestyle, Arts and Sports & Societies. The design is clean and simple, recently having been re-imagined with a lifestyle-twist, and all of the board are very proud of the work we do, as well as of student media at Royal Holloway as a whole.

It’s easy to get involved, as contributions can be made simply by clicking on the ‘Submit Article’ tab. You can also become a part of everything else The Orbital does by signing up as a member of SA Media at www.su.rhul.ac.uk, to get involved with one of our Orbital Editorial Teams, and start building up your profile as a student journalist!
