Our Membership


At the University of Northampton you are automatically a member of the Students' Union unless you choose to opt out during registration (something we are legally obliged to offer under the terms of the Education Act 1994).  

All students (irrespective of whether they opt out) have access to our key services, for example our Advice Centre, Sports Clubs, Societies and Volunteer Projects. 

To stand for election, or vote, participate in democratic meetings including Student Council, you must be a member of the Union. If you've accidentally chosen to opt out during pre-enrolment, you can complete this simple form and return it to the IT Helpdesk at either Park or Avenue Campus to become a member again and get involved!
