Who we are
We are the Students’ Union for everyone studying at the University of Hull. We are here to help you make your time at University count. We do that by supporting you connect, develop and change things.
When we asked students what they thought a key role of a Students’ Union was a common answer was to help you meet new people and build a support network at uni.
- Get together
We do that by providing you opportunities to socialise at events like those held during WelcomeFest or our weekly Karaoke and Quiz nights.
- A place to call your own
Our building is your building. Everyone has their own favourite place to get together for coffee or just chill between lectures.
Hull Stars and HUU Homes can offer you support you during you hunt for the perfect place to live during your studie.
- Something for everyone
We support over 150 student led activities like sports and societies so you can meet students that have the same interests as you or who also want to discover a new passion.
We’ve heard loud and clear that even from your first day on campus you are pursuing your dream job. That’s why everything that we do is focused on is supporting you grow and develop skills for the future.
- Get involved
Each of our clubs and societies are run by students who are responsible for the decisions and day-to-day running of the groups. You can develop skills like leadership, project management, teamwork, budgeting and people management by getting involved.
