Our purpose as a union is to support our Students so they can grow, succeed & have a great time whilst at University. We expect our staff & activities to be INCLUSIVE, as well as being REPRESENTATIVE of the diverse profile of our student members. We are ENGAGING, ensuring we are in touch & listening so we can be SUPPORTIVE. Finally, we are PASSIONATE about making a positive impact, and in all things ensure we are having FUN!

To ensure we represent all at YSJ, we have 3 full-time Presidents, as well as a student Senate made up of 8 liberation officers, a student leader of senate, Sports & Society officers and our student trustees. In addition, we host regular zone meetings, where students can feedback on all aspects of University life. We also administer the activities of around 50 Sports Clubs and Societies.

In our brand new SU building we have a Bar & Coffee lounge to ensure our students have a great place to work and socialise, as well as an info point so they can get any questions answered.

We are really proud of our achievements as a Union, including receiving NUS Quality Students’ Union VERY GOOD award in May 2017 & Investors in People Silver award in March 2015
