Students’ Union

The Students’ Union helps to ensure that your time at the University is fulfilling and unforgettable. You automatically become a member when you enrol and it’s completely free. The Union provides access to many sporting events and societies, student bars, shops and entertainment at both campuses, including:

  • coffee shop
  • club nights
  • comedy nights
  • live music
  • live sports
  • trips

Whilst the Union is regarded as a 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.
