SB and the Guild – About
Sutton Bonington Campus, based 12 miles south of University Park, is home to both the School of Biosciences and the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science. Known as 'SB', the campus has a unique community spirit where you get the best of both worlds - a fantastic social life and a beautiful countryside setting.
At SB we have our own dedicated SU team, the Sutton Bonington Guild. The Guild is made up of non-sabbatical members – your fellow students – who help to run campus events and activities and ensure your voices are heard. In addition, the guild is there to represent and support you and is also your gateway through to all of the many networks, support & Welfare services available from your Students’ Union at the University of Nottingham.
Throughout the year, we have a brilliant programme of events and activities to keep you busy - and there is a whole lot more to SB than our brilliant farmers’ market. We run everything from regular dining-ins and a roller disco to a huge end of year ball.
We also have loads of societies and sports of our own to keep you going; whether you’re a budding artist, avid ambler, or keen to start horse riding, we have something for you. Just check out our society and sports pages to see what we have on offer. You’re also able to join over 200 other societies based at the other UK Campuses- the opportunities are endless
Plus, while all this is great, we aren’t just here to make sure you have a great time. We work really hard to ensure your campus fits your needs, supporting campaigns to effect the change you want and helping you to share your views and ideas.

The Guild is our very own representative Students’ Union team, here to make sure everyone at SB feels like part of the SU. The Guild lies at the heart of your life at SB, and is made up of your fellow students who work together to ensure you get the most out of your time at University.
