Where is the Students’ Union? 

The Students’ Union is run by students for students, located in the central social hub of the College. The door is always open, so call in to say hello, get involved or become active. 

Who’s in Charge of the Students’ Union? 
An Executive led by  two full-time elected sabbatical officers, the President and Deputy-President, runs our Students’ Union 

Sabbatical means they are employed full-time on paid salaries from the Students’ Union budget. Nine non-sabbatical officers are also in full-time education in the College. Non-sabbatical means they are still full-time students. 

 The Students’ Union has an excellent working relationship with College staff. The College gives the Students’ Union a budget each year so they can operate in the interests of our students.  

 To help and support students, the Coordinator for Student Guidance and Support regularly works with the President and Deputy-President.
