|Welcome to The Student Room|
Welcome to The Student Room!
The Student Room (or TSR as it is affectionately known) is a thriving free student discussion forum, if you can think of a topic there will be somewhere for you to discuss it on TSR.
The Student Room is the world's largest and fastest-growing student community, with more than 1.1 million members. We also have the TSR wiki which has thousands of pages of revision notes, hundreds of sample UCAS personal statements and articles on everything from gap years to coping with long-distance relationships.
The site welcomes people from any stage of education. You can read and post messages in any of our forums free of charge. We only ask that you register (which will take a few seconds.) Once you have done this you can join in any existing discussions, start your own and contribute to the ever-growing array of resources and information for students.

|Who runs The Student Room?|
|The Student Room is run by a large collection of people, ranging from the paid members of staff (The Community Team) to the voluntary helpers (Support Team). The Community Team work for the company that owns TSR, The Student Room Group, and are based at the company's head office in Brighton, in the UK, and are generally responsible for the behind-the-scenes running of the site. The Support Team are varied bunch, who dedicate much of their time to helping students on a day-to-day basis. Read on for a break down of what each role consists of.
The Community Team's raison d'etre is the continued growth of The Student Room. Working with the Support Team and all site users they plan the direction TSR should take and then work to get us there.
Section Leaders are long standing members handpicked for their understanding of TSR and their leadership skills. They specialise in and oversee a specific section of TSR and work closely with the Support Team in that section.
The majority of a Section Leader’s time is taken up providing support and leadership to their Support Team and working closely with the Community Team.
The Support Team are active and respected members within a specific forum or group of forums. They are selected for their keen interest and positive contributions within that area of TSR.
The Support Team members are responsible for facilitating discussion, nurturing community and keeping things tidy and friendly in their area(s).
In addition, the Support Team also work with members in their specific forums to make recommendations to the Community Team on improvements that could enhance their sub community on TSR. This could be updates to the forum; but also wider resources such as articles, blogs, photos, partnership suggestions etc.
Community Assistants are responsible for keeping their specific forum area orderly, by moving posts, merging threads and tagging threads appropriately.
TSR Group Staff
Those known as TSR Group Staff are employed by The Student Room's parent company, The Student Room Group Ltd. They may interact with the site from time to time, but on the whole their job doesn't require them to be on TSR most of the time, unlike The Community Team.
Those in the TSR Group Staff may work in different departments within the company such as sales, development and finance. Because most TSR Group Staff members aren't consistently on the site, we ask that any questions on the site be made to either our Community Team or Support Team.
To find out who is in the Support Team, or any of the other teams listed above, see https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showgroups.php .
|What's a thread/sticky/wiki? etc - The TSR Glossary|
|TSR has a number of terms for specific things that some new members may struggle to understand. To prevent the need to ask about them, we've provided a Glossary of TSR terms to help you out. Below are the basics, but for a more in depth list of terms and definitions, see the TSR Glossary on the Wiki.
