Hi, I’m John House and I am the Sport and Student Development Officer. My role is to help Sports clubs within the University and help Students develop skills and undergo training outside of their studies.

I’ve been at the University of Bristol since 2012, initially studying History as an Undergraduate and then Film and Television Production as a Postgraduate. Throughout my whole time at the University I’ve been heavily involved and interested in sport, with two years as the Men’s Volleyball captain, one year as the Volleyball Club Captain and one year already under my belt as your Sport and Student Development Officer.

I absolutely love the University of Bristol, the Students Union and the City itself, so expect to see me supporting as much of the great work students do as possible, as well as our beloved establishments on the Triangle.

If you ever have questions or ideas, or simply want to have a chat then don’t hesitate to get in touch either by email or on Facebook.

 

Here's what I want to do for you:

1. Work closely with the University to build a community around sport at Bristol

Work closely with the University to build a community around sport at Bristol that students can both feel proud of, and engage with, through increased publicity and enthusiasm around the great work that happens already every day.

2. Continue to rejuvinate the sport and physical activity offer at the University of Bristol

Continue to rejuvenate the sport and physical activity offer at the University of Bristol, ensuring its accessible, affordable and most importantly high quality.

3. Spend time removing remaining barriers to participation

Spend time removing the barriers to participation that remain, therefore increasing the numbers of students involved in activity at Bristol, particularly through the great initiatives that already exist such as Get Active or Fit and Fab.

4. Streamline personal development opportunities for students

Streamline personal development opportunities for students, ensuring they are easily accessible to all, as well as monitoring the way they are delivered, ensuring they remain as relevant as possible.
