At ARU, you are part of a body of over 30,000 students across 4 cities in the UK.

With everyone working as a union, we can create real change both within the University, and the wider world, be it enviromental, social or political change.

Everything We Do is Led by Students, For Students


Because we're independent from the university, you get to decide how we're run and what we do.

You get to decide this by voting in our elections, getting your voice heard through the Group Chat or participating in campaigns.

Our core function is representation, which means we dedicate almost all of our resources into making sure you get your voice heard at the university.
