About us

The University of Nottingham Students’ Union exists to enable every student at the University of Nottingham to fulfil their potential, meet their aspirations and to have the most incredible time at University.

Formally, we are a registered charity that acts as the recognised representative body of all students at the University, and every student is automatically a member free of charge.  We support students to share and air their views on academic life and the wider University experience.  The Union provides a huge range of social, cultural, sporting and recreational activities, including forums for discussions and debates, and opportunities for their personal development.  We support opportunities for students to represent their opinions about University life, creating improvements wherever possible; we provide a comprehensive Advice Service to help students with academic, legal, financial and personal problems. 

The Students' Union employs over two hundred staff in its Commercial Services and Membership Services.  Around half of our staff are students who balance work with their studies and social lives.  Other staff work full-time, some are part-time and some are required only during term-time and thus work for just part of the year.
