What are 'Representative Networks'?
Networks are groups designed to represent students from various backgrounds and identities. The student Networks we currently support are:
They are free to join and aim to provide a safe and fun environment for students to express themselves. Networks host social events, helping bring students together and ensure that the views of these students are heard within the Students' Union.
Video: LGBT+ Network hosted a conference last year bringing students together from across the country to talk about supporting LGBT+ students at University.
Examples of things Networks have done:
The Mature, Parent & Carer Network worked with us to and the University to introduce a children's library on campus to help student parents studying on site
The Women's Network campaigned with the Students' Union to implement free sanitary products across Union venues
The Disabled Students' Network worked with the Students' Union around parking and campus accessibility
This isn't an exhaustive list, and we'd love to hear about which Network you'd like to get involved with. Let us know by using the messenger app in the corner of our site.
