Sunderland Students' Union

Sunderland Students' Union is a student-led organisation, here to give you and all students a chance to get the best out of your time at the University of Sunderland.

Join us for exciting events, make lots of memories, and grab a bunch of FREEBIES! But seriously, we have many opportunities you can get involved in and events you can attend with your friends, or to make friends. Our opportunities can help you get skills and boost your CV, and we're here to represent your voice through your student experience.

Your Voice

There are many ways of getting involved, from becoming a Course Rep to joining our team of Student Voice Reps (this one is paid!). We are always keen to hear your ideas!

We have 4 elected presidents and 6 part-time officers at the SU - could you be our next?

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 over 40+ student-led societies (and growing!) covering everything from K-Pop, Games, faith and cultural groups to LGBTQ+ and Parents and Carers…and even Hedgehogs!


Your Volunteering

We have a great range of volunteering opportunities both within the SU and out in the community. If you want to give a little bit back while learning new skills and boosting your CV, why not get involved?


Your Events

We are running a range of events and activities right through the year – on campus, in the city, and further! Join one of our famous day trips away or come to celebrate a cultural day with free food – we have something for everyone.


Your Advice and Support

If you ever face any difficulties, we seek to empower you. We offer expertise in university policy and procedures, and we can also help with select housing and wellbeing issues.


Your SU Buddies

SU Buddy is a great way to meet new people, familiarise yourself with your campus, boost your confidence and discover the beautiful city you'll be living in. All of that with a student like yourself who's been in a similar situation.

Simply register, and leave the rest to us. We'll look at your interests and area of study to match you up with a Buddy that can help you make the most of your experience here at the University of Sunderland!
