Welcome to Lincoln! This year, myself and my fellow Student Leaders: Mohit, Emma, Georgia and Abi have been elected by students to lead the SU. It’s our job to listen to what students want and to TAKE ACTION! There are so many reasons to get involved with the SU from improving your employability to making friends for life, and we’re here to make sure that your Uni experience is the best it can be!
With over 130 sports team and societies, you’re guaranteed to find something that interests you. From Netball to Gaming and Politics to Tennis, what will you discover? We also offer a programme of Social Sport, which you can take part in for just £2 a week and no obligations. However you choose to get involved, there’s something for EVERYONE.
No matter your situation or level of study, our Advice Centre is always in hand to be part of your support network. With our professional, independent and impartial advice we’re here to help you with any problem, big or small. We can advise on issues relating to welfare, finances, housing and your academic experience. You will always be welcome to attend our weekday drop-in, where you will always find our advisors ready to help.
University is your chance to prepare yourself for your future career. The SU has hundreds of opportunities for you to get involved with to boost your CV. Become an SU Volunteer, complete The Duke of Edinburgh Award, lead a sport team or society or even get involved with recruiting staff at the University. Add these to your SKILLS LOG and keep track of the skills you are gaining.
Representing your academic interests is at the top of our to-do list. We want to make sure that your experience at University is the best it can be. Supported by your Student Leaders, 500 Academic Reps will address issues on your course and make changes, whilst the Campaigns Network are here as a voice for the LGBT+, BAME, Disabilities and Women’s communities as well as running RAG and environmental campaigns across campus. We ensure your voice is heard on-campus, in the community and at a national level.
Our award-winning venues provide something for every student. From our homely student pub (The Swan) and vibrant sports bar (Tower Bar), to our live music and night club venue (The Engine Shed) and our unique on-the-water cocktail bar (The Barge). If you need any more of a reason use our venues, every £1 spent in them is re-invested into the student experience.
