University of Leicester Students' Union

A big hello from your SU - we are with you every step of the way

 

We are an empowering, innovative and inclusive student-led Union championing your interests and providing a community that is home away from home.

University life is a truly unique experience, full of great people and amazing activities. That’s why we’re dedicated to making sure every one of the University of Leicester's 20,000 students we represent embarks on a journey that is nothing short of exceptional.

Although we regularly collaborate with the University, we are a fully independent organisation made up of student elected representatives that work totally and completely for you.

So whether it’s signing up to one of our 250+ student groups or boosting your CV through part-time work, training or volunteering; you can count on us for the support you need to adjust, advance and achieve during your studies.

You can visit us at Reception or pop along to the Union office on the first floor above Reception. For our opening hours and details on how to get in touch with us visit our Contact Page
