What is the Students’ Union?

Students’ Unions exist in nearly all colleges and universities. On enrolling at AUB, you are automatically a member of the Union.

AUBSU is affiliated with the National Union of Students (NUS) and you are eligible for a free NUS card and all of the associated benefits such as discounts and available promotions.

Who are we?

We are the AUB Students’ Union and we’re here to help provide the best possible experience for all students at AUB.

The SU provides opportunities for all students to take part in, including a range of sports clubs, societies, social events, our very own publication and a gallery space in the University House basement.
