All students of the University of Bristol on registered programmes are automatically full members of the Students' Union. Your rights to be an automatic member were secured by NUS lobbying during the formation of the 1994 Education Act. If you do not wish to be a member of the Students' Union you have the right to withdraw your membership by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Being a full member of the union entitles you to full access to all of the activities, campaigns, events and services of the Students' Union, as well as the right to vote in our annual elections, referenda and other decision making bodies.
Are there other ways to join?
We currently offer four other levels of membership:
On occasion, student groups may wish to restrict their membership to Full Members (students) of Bristol SU only. This is usually because facilities or equipment are limited so the group wishes to prioritise student use.
See our Associate Membership page for more information and instructions on how to apply.
