How to Speak to the Right Person

While running your group, there can be a lot of different things to think about. The great news is that there is a lot of help and support available to you on a wide range of useful subjects.  All of the departments below work together to provide you the best service possible.  All of these many people and departments can be accessed by emailing activities@susu.org.

Please note the Activities Office is open Mon - Fri, 9am - 5pm (excluding public holidays and University closures).


Student Activities

The lovely people in this department can offer you advice on a whole host of areas and should always be your first port of call if you aren’t sure who to approach.  We can either sort it out for you or point you in the direction of someone who can. The Student Activities team can be found in the Activities Office located in building 42, level 2 (next to the Sabbatical Office).



The Democracy department deals with groups affiliating to the Union and can also help with all queries relating to elections, constitutions and how SUSU rules and regulations might apply to your student group. You can contact them via email on democracy@susu.org, come see the Democracy Coordinator in the Hub (level 2 of building 40) or our VP Democracy in the Sabbatical Office (level 2 of building 42. 


Advice Centre

The Advice Centre can help students with problems such as housing issues, finance and budgeting, academic appeals and support with other University regulations. All advice is free, independent and confidential so if you are concerned about any of your members, you should always refer them to the Advice Centre. They can be found in the Hub (level 2 of building 40), contacted on advice@susu.org or 023 8059 2085.


Sabbatical Officers and Student Leaders

SUSU is a student-led organisation with a whole range of students voted in to represent you. There are 7 sabbatical officers who work full time for the Union, and many more student leaders who volunteer their time to represent you. These are the people who make the big decisions and ensure that SUSU continues to reflect student needs. Below you will find a list of the officers most relevant to student groups. If you would like to contact any of them, please visit our Student Officers page here. In the first instance, it is best that you speak to a student leader or member of staff, due to the high number of enquiries that Sabbaticals receive.
