The Arts University Bournemouth Students’ Union is all about you: the students – led by the students, for the students.
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. We strive to work closely with students in order to provide necessary support in all areas of university life, including education, welfare, employment, sports, clubs, events and societies as well as a whole host of other platforms.
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.
Where to find us
Our office is located next door to Student Services. AUBSU are a small team with big ideas! We’re on campus Monday-Friday from 9.00-17.00, so if you need guidance or support with anything whatsoever, come and find us. Alternatively, you can get in touch via social media, or dropping an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sports, Clubs, Societies and Music
AUB students can use the sports facilities at Bournemouth University, just across the road. There’s a Gym, and plenty of classes and clubs to join – see it all at SportBU. AUB students pay the same rates as BU students.
AUBSU run lots of clubs and societies. You can even start your own if you don’t find one that suits you. AUB students can also join Clubs and Societies with SUBU – Bournemouth University Students’ Union – who have over 100.
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.
If you are keen to kick start a project, sports club, society, or you would just like to be involved with the Students’ Union for the upcoming year, then get in touch online, or come and find us in the office.
If you want to get really involved, you can run as a voluntary SU Officer and become part of our Executive Committee.
