Students' Union

The Suffolk New College Students’ Union is an organisation run by students for students who employ staff to run specific activities.

The Students’ Union plays an important part in representing your interests with College staff including Senior Managers. It also helps provide a wide range of services and activities on campus, including Rag Week and Freshers’ Week! The Students’ Union also negotiates special discounts with local shops and traders. 

What are our main aims?

  • Set up and run student clubs, societies, sports, social and cultural activities
  • Help improve student education
  • Represent student interests
  • Promote and protect the welfare of our members
  • Provide services to meet student needs
  • Promote and celebrate equality and diversity

These aims and objectives shall be practised without discrimination on the grounds of age, disability, sex, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, medical condition or gender status.

The more involvement you and other students have with us the better. You may want to set up a lunch-time club or suggest ways to improve the College, whatever ideas you may have we want to hear about them, especially if they are quite unusual/crazy and you know it is something other students would like.
