It’s no secret that student life is expensive – by the time you’ve paid for your education and living expenses there’s not a lot left to go in the fun fund. As a charity every penny spent in the Union, through the bar or at events, is reinvested to fund student activities, ranging from societies grants to the best themes for our epic club nights. If things get really tight and you’re really worried about money – we can help with that too.
