Meet the Committee
Find your elected UCS representatives below. Feel free to get in touch whenever with any questions! Our emails can be found on this page. Every term, the UCS holds open meetings, so you’re also welcome to come and field questions in person. For important resources and information, have a look at the public google!
Hello! I’m Vee (he/him) and I’m a second-year medic and UCS president this year. Going to Clare has been an amazing experience for me and I’ve never felt like I didn’t belong in this vibrant community. It’s such a friendly and nurturing environment there are so many opportunities and societies to get involved in. You’ll probably see me in the library from time to time. My favourite animal’s the capybara and I love community and the office. I will unapologetically quote both whenever appropriate. Anyway, I hope to meet many of you soon.
That’s all from me folks.
My email is vk372 [at] cam [dot] ac [dot] uk!

ACADEMIC AFFAIRS OFFICErJenny Yang
Hello! I’m Jenny (she/her), and I’m the Academic Affairs Officer for the UCS. As a 2nd year medical student, I have spent my fair share of time studying (and falling asleep) in the library, and appreciate the importance of having effective support – including study spaces, resources and services.
I’ll be working closely with the Clare librarians and the Subject Reps, as well as the welfare and wellbeing officers on the UCS to make sure you have all the support you need. Feel free to drop me an email (jjy27 [at] cam [dot] ac [dot] uk) if you have any concerns about study provisions, or any advice about how things could be improved in Clare!
ACCESS OfficerEmma Caroe
Hello! I’m Emma, I use she/her pronouns, I study maths and I’m from Sheffield. As Access Officer this year I hope to make Clare a less daunting place to apply to for those from marginalised backgrounds – I’m excited to get involved in outreach and would encourage anyone who’s interested in helping to contact me on ekc36 [at] cam [dot] ac [dot] uk 🙂 When I’m not stressfully trying to meet my deadlines, I can be found either singing in chapel, running through Cambridge enjoying the lack of hills, or most likely singing some more!
Buildings OfficerLouis Bosnell
International Students OfficersPerry Sun and Maggie Tam
Hi everyone! I am Perry (she/her) from Beijing, a first year architect, and I am Maggie (she/her), a first year PBS student from Hong Kong. We are very excited to be your international students officers for 2022-23! We will be working to promote cultural appreciation and celebrate diversity in college, as well as ensuring the international community feels heard and welcome at Clare.
Ethical and Environmental Affairs OfficerHaley Huang
Hey! I’m Haley (they/them), the UCS Ethics and Environment Officer and a first-year Engineer. This year, my goal is to be involved in spreading awareness of various ethical affairs and environmental events happening within Clare and around the university as a whole. I know many of you want to be involved to different degrees and I’m dedicated to making more opportunities known to Clare students! Additionally, I’m trying to set up a scheme where people can potentially borrow UCS-owned items for more sustainable events within the college.
Apart from complaining about my degree, you can find me dancing (quite poorly), drawing, and playing the electric guitar in my room. Feel free to contact me if there is any ethics and climate-related things you have in mind (or just want someone to chat to) at hwh27 [at] cam [dot] ac [dot] uk!
Mental HEalth and Disabilities OfficeRAbi Hodder and Anna Piper-Thompson
Welfare OfficersSally Edser and Harry Armstrong
Hey everyone! I’m Sally (she/her), a first year Classicist. This means I spend a lot of time staring at old pots, and will welcome literally any distraction from verb conjugations.
I’m excited to be one of your Welfare Officers, and look forward to seeing you all at welfare events! Please feel free to come to me if you have any welfare-related suggestions, or just want a chat at any point.
You can usually find me in the LCR pretending to do work, drinking endless cups of tea, or coming up with new ways to stress-bake without an oven (and if you’ve seen me crash dramatically into other boats while attempting to punt, no you haven’t)
SOCIAL secretariesUmair Ahmad and Emma Whitaker-Pitts
Sports and Societies OfficerRafaella Markides and Lucy Paget
Hi! We’re Rafaella (she/her) and Lucy (she/her), your new Sports and Societies officer! Rafaella is a first year medic and Lucy is a first year lawyer, so we know how important having ways to take a break can be. We want to showcase all the amazing societies Clare has to offer and make sure there is something for everyone. Feel free to message us with any questions at all at lcap4 [at] cam [dot] ac [dot] uk and rilm2 [at] cam [dot] ac [dot] uk!
WOMEN and Non-Binary OfficersRosie Sutton and Georgia Bartlett
Transgender Students RepLucas Smith
HELLO! My name is Lucas and I use they/he pronouns. I am also your UCS and COI trans rep, whoop!
My job is to work with the LGBTQ+ officer and the rest of the UCS to make sure that Clare is a safe and celebrating space for the trans and non-binary community. I will be involved in pushing for trans liberation, making accessible trans resources and spreading the big trans love! I am always happy to have a vibe with anyone who wants to talk about anything gender or queer related (or anything really!), and point you in the direction of support and good vibes 🙂 (my speciality is silly little memes and shark facts- please let me tell you shark facts I’m begging) The trans community here is absolutely beautiful and wonderful, and there will always
be support and love for you. Celebrate yourselves and keep on spreading that trans joy <3
I am currently a first-year geography student, but thanks to my rather skilled ability to get distracted by absolutely everything, you will find me most of the
time in the ADC theatre doing tech work and being a gremlin. Up
ladders, in the ceiling, using tools in the workshop I really shouldn’t be allowed to use without adult supervision- basically anywhere I
can get into trouble :))
