If you want to make a positive difference on your course and represent your peers, then this could be a great role for you.

Join a society

The Students' Union has hundreds of societies, and they are a great way to meet new people whilst doing the things you love most! Our department is closely associated with two societies.


CompSoc is a subject-specific society for students in the School of Computer Science, which focuses on social events, trips, and careers information for Computer Scientists.

HackSoc is a university-wide society of students that want to make exciting things (usually by programming), learn to code in new languages, and attend hackathon events.

About the Students’ Union

Your Students’ Union (SU) is at the heart of student life.  

They are an independent, student-led organisation that represents your needs, protects your rights and, when it comes to making important decisions that affect you, makes sure your voice is heard. And as a University of Nottingham student, you’re already a valued and celebrated member of the SU. 

From its home in the Portland Building, the SU works hard to make sure your university experience is the best it can be, from the day you arrive to the day you graduate. They’re here to make sure that you can experience a huge range of social, cultural, sporting and recreational activities, make changes by standing up for what you believe in, and find support when you need a helping hand.


Societies - get involved, have fun

You can join any of our diverse and vibrant societies. With over 200 societies and other student-run groups and services you can pursue your current passion or hobby, find a society or organisation specific to your degree such as languages, film and television, other cultures and countries such as America and Canada… or try something new? You might even want to start your own society.


Become a course rep 

Course reps are a vital part of the student voice. Through gathering feedback from your peers, sitting in key meetings and by lobbying or campaigning for positive change, you can make a real difference to the academic experience of those on your course.
