Everything we do at Edge Hill Students’ Union is shaped by students, and we’re here to represent ALL students at Edge Hill University, including YOU!
Our job is to listen to YOUR voice. Whether it’s making improvements to your academic experience, or helping you join and create your own societies, we’re here to make sure your time at Edge Hill is the best it can be!
We want to:
- understand what you want to see at Edge Hill, and do everything we can to make that a reality
- engage with as many Edge Hill students as possible throughout the year
- ensure that ALL students have access to a high-quality academic experience
- support you and encourage you to develop your interests and skill set outside of your course studies
- inspire you to develop new ideas, be creative, and campaign for change.
So, how can one organisation do all of that?
Every year Edge Hill students elect sabbatical officers and student reps to represent the student voice
Our student ofﬁcers are supported by a team of full and part-time staff, as well as part-time ofﬁcers and reps who are elected to represent groups including LGBQ+ students, BME students, mature/part-time students, postgraduate students, women, students at our Manchester site, international students, and trans & non-binary students.
Course reps will also support you with issues you may be having during your studies, or with changes you’d like to make to your academic experience.
As an organisation, we sit on academic boards to ensure students are always considered in any decision made by the university. This is why it’s so important that you vote in our SU elections in March to make sure the people making decisions reﬂect your voice too!
We offer free, independent, confidential advice
Our hugely popular Advice Centre is on campus to offer you support and guidance in key areas such as academic issues, welfare beneﬁts, housing, money, and debt.
And remember! We’re completely independent from the university, so you don’t have to worry about your conﬁdentiality when you visit our Advice Centre for academic guidance.
We offer drop-in sessions, 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 here.
We look after societies
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.
Events?! Yep, we do definitely do those!
We pride ourselves on creating fantastic student events, with a jam-packed Welcome Week schedule and a better-than-ever ‘Give it a Go!’ calendar for 2019/20, with “crafternoons”, trips, masterclasses, workshops, socialising opportunities, and more.
We hold special events for all students, including mature and commuting students, to help you ﬁnd friends and settle in. We also organise the epic Grad Ball, and run the SU Bar and VENUE, with events on nearly every night on campus.
We’re the on-campus sellers of Edge Hill merchandise as well as LOADS of other goodies!
We are the ofﬁcial Edge Hill merchandise sellers on campus, and our hugely popular online shop is there for you when walking to the SU building is just too much effort!
We also brought SUBWAY™ to campus (you can thank us later) and promote TOTUM by NUS Extra throughout campus!
It’s so much better when we’re together…
We want you to want to be involved in everything we do, so follow us on social media and get in touch with your thoughts, feelings, views, and ideas. You can also register to receive our fortnightly newsletter by creating an account on our website, and you can also order your ofﬁcial merchandise there too!
