The Students' Union
Welcome to all from the Students’ Union and here’s hoping you enjoy your time here!
The Students’ Union is a representative body democratically elected by the student body each year, to provide representation and support for all students at both academic and non-academic level. All students are automatically members of the union as we’re here for your benefit and to act on your behalf. Feel free to approach us at any time, about any issue. And, of course, the strength of any Students’ Union is dependent upon its membership, so please get involved as much as you can.
Any questions? Contact the Union's officers below, or drop into the S.U. Office, C114, at the top of the stairs in Block C.
