We are a registered charity, completely independent from the University. Led by students, backed by volunteers and staff, we seek to ensure that your time at the University is the best it can possibly be – that it is rewarding, fulfilling and memorable. All students automatically become members of the Students' Union – a vibrant community of around 10,500 – as soon as they enrol and it's absolutely free! As a member, you are entitled to all of our services and opportunities, including sports, societies, volunteering, advice and representation, our retail outlets and our nightclub. Whatever your passion or interest, time commitment or background, it couldn't be easier to get involved in an activity at the Students' Union – we have something for everyone. There are more than 25 sports clubs to choose from, ranging from Cheerleading to Rugby League, plus diverse societies including the History Society, Chinese Cultural Society and Disney Society! Even if you can't find the one you're looking for, you can start your own!.
