This guide is a whistlestop tour of all of the wonderful things that we do for you at the Students’ Union, and all of the exciting events we have planned over the coming weeks.

You’ll learn more about how we represent your views and ideas to the university, about how we offer advice for when things aren’t quite going to plan and how we help support our amazing student groups and societies.

We also operate two recently renovated bars, and every penny you spend at the Union goes straight back into supporting services for students!
