The Arts University Bournemouth Students’ Union is all about you: the students – led by the students, for the students.
Who are the Students' Union?
The Students’ Union exists to make sure that all students have the best possible experience whilst studying at AUB. We’re made up of:
- The President and Vice President – two Officers elected by you, the students, to listen and lead the Union.
- A team of Executive Officers – students elected in the same way as the President and Vice President, to represent students and help guide the Union. You can learn more about them here [hyperlink to Executive Officer information].
- A team of staff – seven indispensable staff members support the Officers and the Union, making sure it keeps running smoothly each year.
- All AUB students! Yes, even you.

Other Benefits Available to AUB students
AUB students can also join clubs and societies at SUBU (Bournemouth University Students’ Union), and can train but cannot compete in their sports club teams.
University Music offers a wide range of musical opportunities to students, staff and members of the local community and we cater for all levels of ability and musical interests. AUB students have the same access as BU students.
AUB students can use the sports facilities at Bournemouth University, just across the road. AUB students pay the same rates as BU students. There’s a gym, and plenty of classes to join – see it at SportBU.
