The University of Sussex Students' Union aims to make the lives of its members better by providing opportunities such as sports clubs and societies, advice and support services on academic issues and student-friendly shops and bars on campus.

The Students’ Union exists to represent students’ interests both within the University and the wider community and campaigns on relevant local, national and international issues.

The Students’ Union is a charitable organisation and its direction is democratically determined by its members, the University’s students. We carry out research to find out what students think of us and to assist in our campaigning and lobbying.

As well as representation, the Students’ Union provides a variety of services to help students through university life, including academic advice, sports clubs, student media, social, cultural and political societies, commercial services such as bars and shops plus our very own lettings agency.
