Use your downtime for good, level up and share a unique and special experience with others

Advertise to student volunteers

Find out how you can advertise to student volunteers and raise your profile around campus below.

Upload your opportunities

Once you are registered on the website then you can log in to upload volunteering opportunities onto our online database. Students can then browse and register interest for these opportunities. You can change the details on your profile and volunteer roles at any time and can have a number of staff members coordinating a number of different volunteer roles, provided all have agreed to the conditions of our Service Level Agreement.

Try and use friendly and student-focused language to ensure potential volunteers feel that you are approachable. Write with an active voice and try to include a call to action so students feel as though they can really make a difference.

Contact interested students promptly

You will be notified by email when any prospective volunteers register interest for your opportunities. You can access the volunteer contact details from the volunteers tab within the opportunity. Try and get in contact with students as soon as you can as this shows that you are welcoming and organised.

How you can promote to students

QMSU Volunteering will promote your opportunities accordingly to students via our website, social media channels, through our regular email communications, and through tailored communications with academic schools.

Submit content for our newsletter Social Media request

We will invite you to Volunteer Fairs and other student engagement events free of charge, and advise you on the best ways to promote your volunteering roles.

If you would like to discuss your options in more detail, then get in contact with the team on

Keep in touch

We expect all registered partner organisations to let us know if they successfully recruit any Queen Mary volunteers by sending a list of names and volunteering hours once per month. This is for reporting and evaluation purposes and also allows us to recognise our students through our Volunteering Awards. We can also see which organisations are engaging with our students.

If you have any questions about advertising your roles which the FAQ's page does not answer, please email
