Your SU is home to more than 200 societies and over 70 sports clubs, as well as student media groups, student-run services and student Networks. So there’s no one way to be part of it all.

In fact, no matter what you’re into and whatever makes you tick, you’ll find it here:

  • Sports
  • Societies
  • Volunteering
  • Student media groups
  • Events and activities
  • Student Networks

Not sure where to start? Take a look at our volunteering opportunities, student media groups and Activity Matchmaker, which will match you up with your new hobby. And if you can’t find the society or group you’re looking for, we’ll help you start it!

Make change

Our democracy and elections give you a platform to stand up for what you believe in.

Got ideas to improve the student experience? Feeling inspired and want to champion a cause? Want to stand with others who share your passion? Now’s your chance to make a difference to student life.

We hold elections four times a year for positions like:

  • Hall committees
  • Course, School and Faculty Reps
  • Education Reps
  • Students’ Union Officers

And anyone can stand for election, whether you’ve just arrived for the first time or are back for your second or third year. Not for you? Don’t worry – you don’t have to stand for election. But do make sure you vote. After all, it’s the best way to make your voice heard.

We all need help from time to time, and the start of University is no different.
