Whilst the union is regarded as an enjoyable hub of entertainment, it also provides representation, services, opportunities and guidance to all students at the University of Northampton.
The union is run by three full time elected sabbatical officers as well as a number of part time elected officers who are current students of the University. These include representatives for international, postgraduate and mature students, sports and societies, equality and diversity, ethics and environment and fundraising.
The Student’s Union have been presented with various high profile awards over the years, confirming the union as being a safe venue with effective policies on drink, drugs, crime prevention, fire, security and first aid.
