Introducing Your Students' Union

15 Jan 2019 9:45AM


Your time here is unique and your Students' Union (SU) will help you experience it to the fullest. If you want to meet people, learn new skills, experience something new or just have fun, we can help. You could join a society, play competitive or social sport, represent your course or have an impact on national or local issues. We host a Freshers’ week to start the term off right – and then beyond this we run a variety of activities, from pub and club nights to student family get togethers, cultural events and an end of year ball. And if what you want isn’t in our programme, let us know and we’ll support you to get it started.


SU societies welcome new members each year. Whatever your ‘thing’ is then there will be a society for you, from games to culture, there is plenty to choose from. Alternatively, you can start your own! SU Societies meet throughout the term and are a great way to meet new people beyond your course or accommodation and to get experience outside of your course.


Sport is at the core of student activities and plays an important role at the University of Suffolk. Your SU offers a diverse and exciting range of opportunities for you to get involved with sports and fitness, catering to all needs and abilities. From our Social Sport programme to our competitive sport teams, we’re certain there is something for you!


Sometimes things don’t go your way, or you just need a little bit of a push in the right direction. SU Advice are here to offer independent support whenever you need it. We can help you with issues large and small; we are here to listen, and we always have the kettle on.


We will welcome you with an exciting Re-Freshers’ Week – save the dates 18-24th of February!

Get yourself involved and visit our website, email us at or call us on 01473 338155. Don't forget to go and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter! We will keep you up-to-date on the latest gossip and keep you updated on what’s going on both at Uni and your local community.
