WHO ARE WE?
Part business, part charity, part membership body – no two days in our workplace are the same.
Professionally run, but different. Alongside our hospitality business, we support our students in every aspect of their university experience from assisting in their academic development, supporting them in campaigning for change, and facilitating a huge range of sports clubs and mutual interest societies. We deliver a fun, exciting, and vibrant campus experience for everyone.
