From keeping you entertained with our events programme and helping you do what you love with over 100 societies to supporting you when times get tough, we have a lot to offer students at NTU.

We’re one of the best Students’ Unions in the country!

Over 400 events

Socialising doesn’t stop after Freshers’ Week, it plays a huge role in your university experience. We offer a diverse range of daytime and night-time events to cater for all tastes throughout the year. Follow our dedicated entertainments social media channels for more details.

Over 50 sports clubs

Whether you’re looking to play competitively or just try a new sport for fun, NTU Sport have you covered. You’ll find everything from the classics like football and tennis to the more unusual sports like archery and futsal too.

I strongly believe that the Students' Union plays an integral part of every students' University experience.

Support and advice

We understand that University life can sometimes be overwhelming, which is why we have our own Information and Advice Service (IAS) that acts independently of the University offering free advice and guidance on everything from money matters to mental health.

Over 100 societies

From blogging and knitting to politics and astronomy, there’s a society for every interest at NTSU and joining one is a great opportunity to meet new people and try new things. You can even join them before you get here. Online memberships are available on our main website from Thursday 1st August 2019.

As a foreign student, the cultural change was initially uncomfortable, but through NTSU, I have been able to quickly adapt to my new environment.

Being involved in the Students' Union has helped me decide what I want to do with my life once I have finished university.
