As a student at the University of Southampton you’ve automatically got free membership at the Union. We’re here to represent your voice at every level and ultimately make your university experience as fun as possible.

What can we offer you?


Find out the latest opportunities about the things that matter to you the most in sustainability, the creative industries, volunteering within the local community and more.


Relax and unwind after tough day in our subsidised Union outlets including The Stag’s pub, The Bridge restaurant, our American-style Bar Three Diner and The Café.

Get kitted out in the Team Southampton colours at The Shop on Top and stop off at The Shop below to get the things you need at your convenience.

Watch the latest blockbuster at our very own student-led cinema, Union Films.


Have your say about how we are run with your Halls Committees, during our elections and at our Annual General Meeting (AGM) held every summer. But you can also tell us what you think anytime, any day via You Make Change


Your health and wellbeing is important, so whether you need free, confidential and impartial advice at our Advice Centre, or you simply just want to ask us a question – we’ve got it covered. We offer free services to help you find part-time work at Recruit, student housing at Lettings or simply a lift home on the Safety Bus after a night out with your friends.

Not to mention our student-led listening service, Nightline and Peer Support, which gives you the chance to have a friendly chat with someone you can relate to.

Anything else I should know?

Independent from the University, we’re completely run by students FOR students! With our team of elected student Sabbatical officers (you’ll find out more about these guys later), our mission is to unlock the potential and enrich the life of every student.
