Students’ Union

The Students’ Union is at the heart of student life at the University of Greenwich – a key element in your student experience and the best way to get to know other students and take on new responsibilities.

Whether you play sport or serve on a society committee, perhaps write articles for the magazine or broadcast your own radio show, or get elected as an officer (maybe even President), there are endless opportunities for you to get involved with your students’ union.

SUUG

Students at the Greenwich, Avery Hill and Medway Campuses are all represented by the Students’ Union University of Greenwich (SUUG). In addition, at the Medway campus there is a partnership between SUUG & Kent Union called Greenwich & Kent Students’ Unions Together (GK Unions) in operation, which provides additional student-led services and activities to students on campus.

Membership

Joining the Students’ Union is free and automatic on registering at the university. Your university resource card entitles you to a range of services and activities provided by SUUG, GK Unions and the National Union of Students. (Please note that Partner College students may use all SUUG facilities and services – with limited access to the Advice Service – but may not vote in elections).
You may wish to purchase an NUS Extra card. This allows you to pick up over 800 student discounts on goods and services, including travel, meals, fitness clubs and visitor attractions.

Democracy and representation

The Students Union is a democratic organisation run by students for students. Cross-campus elections are held every academic year, so the students can choose their representatives for the coming academic year. The Students’ Union Elections are your chance to get involved and make a difference. The Students’ Union is your Union. Elected officers play a big part in ensuring that the Union operates in the way you want it to, campaigning for what you want.
