What’s the SU?

This is YOUR College and we want you to have your say! 

The Students’ Union (SU) is run by you, for you and is affiliated to the National Union of Students (NUS). It’s made up of students who form an Executive Committee, Student Governors, Class Reps and most importantly... you! 

SU Elections will run every year, so watch out for election details whether you’re running for a position or voting. If you have an idea for an event that you think students would like, then join the Students’ Union, or simply let them know.
