People often think students’ unions are just about bars and cheap pints, but we are so much more.
The University of Chichester Students' Union (UCSU) - your SU, is run by students for students and is here to make sure you have a good student experience. We provide opportunities such as sports clubs and societies, advice and support services on academic and welfare issues and a run student-friendly shop and bars on both campus (Zee Bar & The Hub).
The SU’s core functions are to provide you with representation, campaigns and support so that you have a good time studying at the University of Chichester. If there is something that you are not happy about and want to change then why not come and talk to us and we will try to help you make a difference. The officers and the staff of the Students’ Union are constantly in discussions with and putting pressure on the University so that changes happen.
The Students’ Union is a charitable organisation and its direction is democratically lead by its members – you the student body.
The Students’ Union is run and lead by three elected full-time officers (The Sabbatical Offiers) who are either recent graduates or taking a year out from their studies. Sabbs are elected every year by our members to make sure that we’re doing what you want. We also have a number of elected part-time officers and reps on a range of committees who make decisions on behalf of students.
Our officers are supported by a team of full-time staff and almost 100 students who work for us to support the activities of our elected officers and keep our services running.
