Your RECs

We are the Resident Experience Coordinators, here to create events (online at first!) and ways for you to connect with others and the university.

Inés Bernal


Hi! I’m Inés, a 2020 Media & Communications graduate specializing in film at Goldsmith’s University.

Born in 1999, I moved to London from my hometown in Madrid, Spain. Passionate about filmmaking and music, I’m a filmmaker, photographer and editor working for travelling agencies, events companies and music artists.

I’ve lived in student accommodation throughout my degree. In my first year I lived in Loring hall, and moved to Chapter Lewisham for my second and final year. 

This is my second year as Resident Experience Coordinator. Last year my main halls were Chapter Lewisham and Ewen Henderson ☺

When I was younger I lived in Thailand. Being exposed to different cultures and lifestyles, I’m passionate about the diversity of the world and the spontaneity of the moment, reflecting these feelings in my artistic universe through the freedom in my projects and films, taking care and thought in the atmosphere in each creation.

Linda Cipoloni

Hi! I’m Linda and I’ll be your REC for this year. I have just finished my BA in Media and Communications at Goldsmiths and I’m about to start my Masters in Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship. 

I am from Italy and I moved to London three years ago to start University. I took a plane by myself and I arrived in a city I didn’t know at all, so I can help with any enquiries regarding adjusting to life in another country, moving by yourself and just learning to live in the moment, leaving behind fears and doubts (I think I managed the art of being instead of thinking, or at least that’s what I tell myself).

I love watching and readings about films, as well as cooking and coming up with a meal with what I have, and mostly, spending quality time with the people I love. 

I’m very into Astrology so when I meet people I always ask them about their sign. I always have fun doing people’s birth charts. I’m a Pisces, in case you are as curious as I am!

Last but not, oh well maybe, least:

I have been making YouTube videos since I was 14 but shhhh, it’s a secret…

Chloé François-Nienaber


I’m Chloé, a graduate student in MA Politics, Development and the Global South. I did a four year undergrad at Goldsmiths in International Relations and Chinese.

I’ve lived in a few countries and many different cities so if you need any tips on how to move, settle in and overcoming cultural barriers you know who to ask! I moved to London in 2016 for my BA and fell in love with South East London. I speak French (duh), English (double duh) and some Chinese. I’m always up to learn new things especially phrases in other languages.

My passions and hobbies are cooking (and eating), sewing, watching series, cycling and candle-making. I love a good chat and have tons of fun(ish) anecdotes about my time at Goldsmiths. My greatest accomplishment is teaching my dog to give a kiss on demand.
