Your Students' Union

Join a sports team, take up a new hobby, campaign for causes you care about and have a say in how the university is run.

Two happy students relaxing at the Students Union

Our students love the sense of community they feel on campus. The Students' Union (SU) is at the heart of the student experience and is a huge part of what student life has to offer.

We are a registered charity and all income raised by the SU is reinvested in services, activities and support for you. This lets us continue to provide you with the best possible student experience.

Have your voice heard

We are the collective voice of students at university committees and on your course through course reps. We also represent you at specific student groups via Chairs of School and Liberation Officers.

Every year you will have the chance to vote for the three Students’ Union Presidents. They will represent you at a local, regional and national level.

You can contact the SU for advice or support on academic issues. We can also connect you with university services and external specialist services.

Feel part of something

Why not join one of our sports clubs, from football and netball to E-Sports. You can share your passions in life by joining a society ranging from the Geek Society to putting on a show with the Musical Production Society.

There are more than 50 clubs and societies to join. If you don't find something for you, all it takes to start a new one is a few like minded people and the drive to make it happen.

The SU hosts weekly entertainments throughout the academic year including quiz nights, karaoke, live sport and live music. We also coordinate larger events throughout the year such as varsity, seasonal special events (Halloween, Snowball) and the legendary Archies Day.

Events will be subject to government social distancing guidelines.
