What is your Students' Union?

The Students’ Union is a member led organisation that strives for the best experience for students. The Union is here to represent and support you as well as offer great social spaces for you to enjoy.

The Union is a non-profit making organisation and makes it's money from commercial services and a grant from the university. It uses its' money to: maintain student activities, re-invest into its' services, provide bigger and better student opportunities and regenerate the union as a whole.

What we do

If you’re looking for societies, sports, liberation networks, volunteering opportunities or anything in-between, then we’re the people you need to speak to. If you want to learn more about what you can do here click here to be taken to the engagement dashboard to see what to do, or speak to our student engagement team by emailing studentengagement@staffs.ac.uk.

Run by students for students

As we’ve mentioned, the union is ran by students for students. Every year students nominate themselves to take part in what we call the Leadership Race. It’s our mini answer to the general election. The idea is the same. Students campaign on campus for a few days and tell you their ideas of how they can make Staffs a better place for you. You vote on who should get into the union office and the winners run the union for the next academic year.

Be part of it

You are the union. The union could not and would not run if you weren’t a part of it. Luckily for you, you are automatically enrolled when you sign up. There’s no better time to kick start your university experience than now.
