There's something very exciting happening on Campus.
EXCITING TIMES AHEAD
Your University and Students’ Union now caters for 25,000 students with changing needs.
To provide our students with an amazing student experience, we need to provide world class facilities.
That’s why we have plans to make some pretty big changes!

WHILE WE WAIT
The old Students’ Union building closed in the summer. We have moved just round the corner to two new venues, SU Elmwood and The Speakeasy.
SU Elmwood is home to the Student Officer Team and Student Voice Team; Advice SU; the Clubs & Societies, Enterprise SU and Volunteer SU Offices; and the Finance and Marketing Offices. Plus, there is a modern Student Lounge, SU Shop and lots of bookable rooms.
The Speakeasy still has pool tables, tasty food and bookable event Space for Clubs & Societies.
