Everything we do at Edge Hill Students’ Union is shaped by students, and we’re here to represent ALL students at Edge Hill University. We’re here to ensure student voices are heard, valued and acted upon.
Our vision is to create the best student experience we can for as many Edge Hill students as possible.
We want to:
- Understand your priorities and respond effectively
- Broaden, deepen and diversify the range of students we engage with
- Ensure you enjoy a high quality academic experience
- Support and encourage you to develop your interests and shape your future
- Inspire you to develop new ideas, be creative, and campaign for change.
Your 2018/19 elected officers are:
- President – Joe Bradford
- Vice President Academic Representation – Luke Myer
- Vice President Welfare – Molly Houghton
- Vice President Activities – Dan Bocharnikov
The officer team are supported by a team of full and part-time staff, as well as part-time officers who are elected to represent LGBT students, BME students, mature/part-time students, postgraduate students, women, international students and trans & non-binary students.
Our hugely popular Advice Centre is also on campus to offer you support and guidance in key areas such as academic issues, welfare benefits, housing, money and debt. We offer both face-to-face and phone appointments to help make the service accessible for all students on and off-campus, and it’s really easy to book an appointment online.
Joining a society is one of the best ways to get involved in student life at university, meet like-minded people and most importantly, have fun! We currently have around 70 active societies with more being created all the time – you can even start your own, and our team can help you to run it, recruit members and sort out the money stuff too.
We run ‘Team Edge Hill’ competitive sports teams and BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport) games, organising transport for away games, kits, referee, training and coaches (have you seen our amazing sports facilities on campus?!) Whether you’d like to join a team, or become an avid flag-waving supporter, there are so many exciting things to be a part of.
We also organise the Grad Ball, and run the SU Bar and VENUE, with events on nearly every night on campus. We are the official Edge Hill merch sellers on campus, and even have a hugely popular online shop when walking to the SU building is just too much effort! We’re also licensed sellers of NUS Extra cards – a must for students to get amazing local, national and international discounts and deals.
We want you to want to be involved in everything we do, so follow us on social media (don’t forget to like, share, tag and comment!) and get in touch with your thoughts, feelings, views, and ideas. The power to change is in your hands…
