Women’s Welfare Officer
Men’s Welfare Officer
As the Welfare Officers, we’re part of the extensive support network that Trinity Hall offers to ensure that you stay healthy and happy while you’re here. Our main job is to look out for your welfare and we are available at any time for an informal and confidential chat about any problems you may encounter — whether they’re health, relationship, family, friend or work related.
We can also give additional advice regarding sexual health and contraception, and related services offered by the University – there are free sexual health supplies in the Welfare Locker in F staircase (central site), BoHo common room, WYNG Gardens common room and BBC common room.
The Welfare team also put on a weekly Welfare tea, in the Terrace Room at 2pm on Sundays, where everyone gathers to have a relaxing chat, share their stories of the week as well as discuss any queries or problems with people who always want to listen. As well as this, Welfare tea is a great opportunity to enjoy some Sunday afternoon snacks free of charge!
The Welfare Network Facebook group and Instagram account (@tithallwelfare) are used by the Welfare officers to update everyone on all aspects of student welfare within college and the wider university community. Anyone and everyone is welcome to join!
Tit Hall is an amazing community – we are here to help you enjoy Cambridge and stay happy in a place that has its stresses. Catch us or any of the welfare team for a chat – see you around!
Women and Non-Binary Officer: Ioana Diac (id334)
Hi everyone, my name is Ioana and I am a second year HSPS student specialising in Sociology. I am your Women’s and Non-Binary Officer, responsible for the well-being and representation of all self-identifying female and non-binary members of the JCR. As part of the welfare sub-team, I am here to offer individual support for anyone with a personal issue that relates to gender, from discrimination to sexual health and sexual violence. In addition to the welfare aspect of this role, it is also a political one and I will engage with the CUSU Women’s Campaign and other groups to raise awareness of political issues both within and outside of the college. If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions about what you would like to see being done in college please do not hesitate to drop me a message or get in touch via email (id334). Love and solidarity xoxo

International Officer: Ryan Yeap (ry276), Kate Han (kh674)
Hi everyone, we are Ryan and Kate, your international officers and we both study Law here at Trinity Hall. Coming from Singapore and Australia (respectively), we both know what it’s like to be in a new environment with new people, and the difficulties that may come with it – trust us, it’s not as complicated as it seems! We are here to represent the interest of the international community here at Tit Hall, and to provide an additional avenue for your welfare & logistical concerns. We work closely with iCUSU (International Cambridge University Student Union) to ensure that all your needs are addressed, as well as assist in the planning for iFreshers week to guarantee a smooth and fun-filled transition into Cambridge life. We’ll also work with iOfficers from other colleges to organise events – so keep an eye out for that! Please do not hesitate to contact us if you think we can be of any help! We’re a friendly pair (don’t let the law degrees fool you) and are always down for a chat!
