Warwick Students' Union
The Students’ Union is the focal point of campus life here at Warwick. Here are a few basic facts about what we do…
"Positively impacting students' lives at Warwick and beyond"
- The Union's Mission Statement
Warwick SU is a charity
Upon enrolling at Warwick, every student automatically becomes a member of the Students’ Union. We exist solely to provide services for our members – that means every single one of you!
Warwick SU and Warwick University are completely separate entities
Although we receive an annual grant from the University and work closely with them, we are an independent organisation which is here to represent your interests on a local, regional and national level.
Warwick SU is democratically-run
Each year, a team of 7 full-time Student Officers is elected by the student body to represent you and to help oversee different areas of the Union's activities. Find out more information and contact your Officer team here.
Warwick SU is a self-sustaining operation
All the revenue we bring in gets divided up between different areas of the organisation to ensure that we’re able to provide a wealth of services for the student body.
Warwick SU runs nightclub events, bars and food outlets in order to fund student activities
