Welcome to the University of Northampton Students' Union!

Led by students, backed by volunteers and staff, the University of Northampton Students’ Union exists to ensure that the students of the University, our members, get the best possible experience from their time at Northampton.

The Students’ Union is a dynamic, fast paced, student-led organisation; representing all students at the University of Northampton across two campuses. The Students’ Union runs a variety of services for students including sports, societies, campaigning, volunteering opportunities locally and abroad, student representation, as well as a number of retail outlets, bars and social venues.

A vibrant and diverse community of almost 15,000 members, you’ll be right at the heart of our service provision!

Over the past three years we’ve grown tremendously. Over 2,000 students now participate in our various Societies, 1,600 students play in our Stallions Sports Clubs and compete nationally in the British Universities & Colleges Sports Leagues every Wednesday, hundreds of students attend our evening entertainments every week and thousands of students recognised for their achievements every year through our volunteer recognition and award ceremonies.

With the University of Northampton moving to a brand new Waterside Campus in 2018, it couldn’t be a more exciting time to join the Students’ Union and be a part of team that leads and manages this transition.
