We love seeing our student groups become more ambitious and achieve more year on year. We want you to be able to use our resources and expertise at the Students' Union to really make your activities the best they possibly can be. Whether this is general guidance or financial support to enhance your activities, your Union is here to help make this happen.

Our Communities Zone Grant opens in the Autumn semester as soon as we elect a Communities Zone Executive Committee (CZEC). It is open throughout the academic year, with the final deadlin of the academic year being the 30th of March.

Good luck!

Creative and Cultural Spaces Fund - OPEN NOW!


Want to host an event, but your society doesn't have the funds to book a venue? Then apply for the Creative and Cultural Spaces Fund! 

Our student groups have been largely displaced due to the partial closure of the Union building. Because it has become increasingly difficult to offer Venue for your events, we have received this grant to act as a helping hand in support of our societies and their student-led activities. Societies will have the opportunity to apply for a grant to help with venue costs! 

The recommended maximum amount societies may apply for is £250, but larger grants will be considered based on merit. 

Grants will be voted on by the CZEC.
