Welcome to the Bristol SU BME Network.


The BME Network exists to provide a safe space within the University of Bristol Students’ Union for self-identifying BME students on campus, and encourage empowerment for our communities through BME-led action and campaigns.


The Network is led by the Chairs Aisha and Chante and it aims to represent BME students on all matters of access, equality, representation, education and welfare.


Here you can find links to upcoming events and relevant articles as well as discussion and dialogue on many matters of interest and concerns for BME students.


We regularly host forums and events such as panel discussions, film screenings, talent showcases and poetry nights. In addition, we hope to set up active networks and facilitate support groups with a range of issues centralized such as BME mental health, LGBT+ people of colour, diversifying the curriculum, class disparity and gender inequality.



Black History Month - October 2017
