Countdown to your Welcome Week:
The University of York Students' Union
We're the University of York Students' Union (YUSU) and we represent all students at York. We can't wait to welcome you in September!
What has Term 1 got for you?

Your 2020/21 Sabbatical Officer team (or ‘Sabbs’) are here to represent your voice to the university, locally and nationally.
Elected to represent students on a multitude of issues, from volunteering to environmental issues. The Part-Time Officers also stand up for under-represented groups on campus and work tirelessly to campaign, put on events and raise awareness of issues affecting those students to make their lives better.
Whether it's asking for more books, clarifying marking criteria or campaigning for better lecture resources, your Academic Reps (ranging from Course Reps to Department Reps and Faculty Reps) are here to make sure your voice is heard by your department.
Every student at York will be assigned to one of York's 9 colleges. The College Committee represents the views of students in their College on issues including accommodation and welfare provision. They also organise your Welcome Week!
We’re so excited to meet all our new students, and can’t wait to host the biggest and best Welcome’ Week events at York. However, every year some unofficial events start popping up over the summer on social media, claiming to be the only ‘official’ Freshers or Welcome events in the City. We’re here to make sure you buy the correct event tickets, are kept safe during your time here and don’t get done by one of these companies!
