Osaro Otobo


Osaro worked as a Consulting Fellow for Halpin for over a year before joining as a full-time consultant, and is already a familiar name to many of Halpin’s clients. She has worked on projects with University of Sunderland, University of Manchester, University of Liverpool and University of Sussex.

She’s currently working with Halpin clients such as University of Exeter and Durham University, and also with Unite Students on a project to research Black students’ experiences of university accommodation.

In 2020, she researched and authored Halpin’s research project ‘UK Universities’ Response to Black Lives Matter’ and chaired a follow-up webinar.

Osaro is also Deputy Chair of British Youth Council, working alongside trustees and staff to help young people make social and political change. She is currently a member of the advisory board for The Association of Students’ Union Professionals.

From lived experiences, she created the Make Diversity Count campaign which is calling for all UK organisations to have transparent and effective anti-discrimination policies and procedures for long-term change.

While studying at the University of Hull for her undergraduate and masters degrees, she was elected for 3 successive years to work in the best interest of students at Hull; she was a postgraduate student trustee and a two-term President at Hull University Students’ Union (HUSU). She was their first ever Black female president and the first Black two-term president at HUSU.
