The Students’ Union – "Doing it for students!”

Getting your voice heard! (Representation)

Our main purpose is to represent ALL students and promote their diverse interests and needs. Derby College Students' Union (DCSU) is independent from the College and is democratically controlled by students, ensuring an effective and open representation structure. 

The Student Advice Centre (SAC)

The Students’ Union has Advisors who can help and support you with many issues including… academic, personal, housing, sexual health, including free condoms and Chlamydia testing.

We can also support you with any disciplinary matter. Please contact us on 07908 526910 or at

Entertainments, Clubs & Societies & Enrichment

We are here to make your time at College as enjoyable and interesting as possible. Whether it’s live music, trips abroad, Alton Towers or just general mayhem we are here to provide it for you. We can also help you set up Clubs & Societies so you can take your interests further! Our Enrichment programme runs all year and also includes educational activities such as, First Aid, safe driving tips, etc. You tell us what you want we’ll try and organise it!
