Undergraduate Study

Cambridge Students Union 2023

Cambridge Students’ Union (Cambridge SU)

Our Students’ Union, Cambridge SU, is a union for all students, undergraduate and postgraduate. Its aim is to make sure that all students are represented, supported and have their voice heard across the University.

Cambridge SU is led by a team of eight elected sabbatical officers who campaign and lobby for change across the collegiate University to improve the student experience. Cambridge SU:

  • represents the student interests on University committees
  • campaigns on students’ priorities, such as mental health provision, structural disadvantages faced by marginalised groups, education policy and climate action
  • supports and connects College student unions (usually called JCRs and MCRs) through training, forums and advice
  • runs the professionally-staffed Student Advice Service
  • manages projects like the Shadowing Scheme for prospective students

There are seven campaigns that exist within Cambridge SU; they are communities within the SU’s student membership. Each group has its own committee, events and campaigns that they run. The SU’s current campaigns are: BME Campaign, Class Act Campaign, Disabled Students’ Campaign, Ethical Affairs Campaign, International Students’ Campaign, LGBT+ Campaign, and Women’s Campaign.

Every College also has its own students’ union, to which undergraduates are elected to represent students at a College level. Running for election is a great way to have a say in student affairs at your College!
