Students' Union

The Students' Union forms the hub of social activity on campus. The Union has a fitness gym, and there are sports pitches for rugby, football and hockey. Many of the University's sports clubs are affiliated with local clubs in the community (a good way of getting to know the locals). Sports clubs are open to all students and there are many teams competing regularly.

The Students' Union is run by the students, for the students - you automatically become a member for free. Should you wish not to be a member, you can opt-out as part of the annual registration process and you can still use all the facilities, services and activities including joining clubs and societies, but you will not be able to take part in the democratic processes of the Union.
