About us

The Students' Union is a charity, separate from the University. We are here to represent all students, ensuring your voices (particularly those of the most vulnerable students) are heard and responded to by the University.

We exist to improve the student experience, and we do this by running sports clubs, supporting student societies, putting on student events, providing bars, cafes, shops, student lettings, jobs, and a lot more - all for our students!
