About

Orbital Magazine is the official publication of Royal Holloway Students’ Union. Our 44 page magazine is released monthly and distributed to the 9,000 students around campus, as well as cafes and pubs in the local area. The magazine is comprised of ten sections: News, Comment, Features, Lifestyle, Arts, Creative Writing, Sports & Societies, Science & Gaming and Live & Podcasts.

Our student journalists, photographers and designers work together to produce interesting and attractive content that we’re proud to publish each month as a team.
