City University London Student Union

We are City Students’ Union

We exist to represent all 17,000 City University students. We provide support, representation, facilities, services, entertainment and activities for all of our members.

We’re run for students, by students. We have three Full Time Students’ Union Officers and a host of other current students who are annually elected by the student body to direct the Union and represent its students. The Students’ Union offers the opportunity for students to get involved and make their issues heard.

Constitution and Regulations

The rules of how the Union operates can be found in a document called the Constitution, which lays down the basic rules that we must follow. This has been approved by students and can only be changed by a Referendum or in a General Meeting.

The Trustees also approve Regulations which provide more detail behind the Constitution.

City Students’ Union Constitution

Students Pass Policy through the Student Officers in the Executive (ratified by Union Council), through General Meetings and through Referendum. Once something becomes Policy of the Union, the Students’ Union must work towards those fulfilling those policies.
