Canterbury Christ Church University Union

Christ Church Students’ Union is a Charity organisation run by students for students, providing support and representation for every student across all our campuses.

In becoming a Student at Canterbury Christ Church you are automatically a member of our Students’ Union. No charge is involved but you are free to ‘opt out’ if you wish; this can be done by notifying the President of the Students’ Union or the Registry.

Your membership to the Union gives you the opportunity to voice your opinions and shape the future of Canterbury Christ Church University.

The Students’ Union is run by students who are elected by students – and everyone can have their say.
