Your Union

Bath Spa Students’ Union is led by students for students. It is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation and registered with the Charity Commission (registration number 1189547).

As a student led organisation, Bath Spa students are central to both the Union’s governance and democratic structures.

As a Bath Spa student and a member of the Students’ Union, you have a variety of opportunities to use your voice to influence the work of your Union and share your ideas.

At Bath Spa Students’ Union:

  • We represent your views, liaising directly with the University and organisations nationally and in the local area to campaign about issues that affect students
  • We run a bar, café, shop and host events which provide services for students and are sources of income for the Union. Every penny of profit from these services is used to provide opportunities, support and representation for students.
  • We run an independent Advice Centre, providing advice on academic and welfare matters and signposting students to other sources of support.
  • We run campaigns on issues which affect students, such as health and wellbeing, registering to vote, personal safety and academic issues.
  • We support clubs and societies to be set up and run by students for the benefit of students.
  • We organise volunteering and skills development opportunities to help you make the most of your time at University.
  • We organise trips and other opportunities for students.
Governance

Governance

As a registered charity, your Students’ Union is governed by a Board of Trustees, chaired by your Students’ Union President. The Board of Trustees oversees the Union’s strategy, its financial and legal health and ensures its long term sustainability. Your Sabbatical Officers serve on the Board of Trustees, alongside four Student Trustees and four External Trustees.

The Democracy and Scrutiny Committee is responsible for setting Union policy and holding the Sabbatical Officers to account. It is chaired by a current student and enables you to submit policy ideas as well as appointing Student and External trustees to the Board of Trustees.
