Sunderland Students' Union

Sunderland Students' Union is run by students, for students, and here to help you make the most of your time at university by ensuring your voice is heard, your views are represented, and your experience is as enjoyable as possible.

Get involved with our events and activities, societies, volunteering, representation and more to meet like-minded people, make friends and learn new skills!

Your Voice

We think your voice really matters. That’s why we have lots of representation opportunities to ensure that you can express your views and make a difference.

Course Reps, Student Voice Reps, Elections, Union Council and more – find out how you want to represent!

Your Societies

Joining a society at Your Students’ Union is a brilliant way to meet like-minded students, make friends and find your community at university, all while having a fantastic time – and maybe even trying something new.

We have 40+ student-led societies, covering a range of topics and interests. Can't find what you're looking for? You can always start a new society yourself!
