Everything Else

What we do

We listen to students, and work with the University to make it better. When students come to us with issues or improvements, we make sure that the University knows. New prayer rooms, student facilities, and the reissuing of exam marks were all of the things we've helped our students get just this year.

Who we are

We’re run by students. A student-elected team of of cers lead a plucky team of staff to make your time at City so much better. If you need a host of activities for the good times and support for the bad, we’re here for you. We’re politically independent from the uni and represent your views. If you need us, we’ve got your back.
