Welcome to your Students’ Union

Independent from the University, we’re first-year students and PhDs, SU staff, elected SU Officers, volunteers and pioneers. And now you’re one of us too.

Welcome is your introduction to life at the University of Nottingham. Whether you’re here for the first time or back for more as an undergrad or postgrad, it’s your chance to find out more about and get involved in University life.

And this is your one-stop shop for all things Welcome. From finding out about events and ticket info to knowing who to contact when you need to find support, we’ve got you covered.
