Hi I'm Gaz, your President for 2021-22. I am the key link between the University and the Students’Union. I communicate your views in order to influence and make change as well as voicing your concerns to key staff in the University. I am committed to ensuring that the student experience at Northumbria is as good as it possibly can be. 

I also campaign on national issues to make sure that the voice of Northumbria students is heard. If you want you get in touch then email me at

What I'm working on

  • Supporting students with employability and campus jobs.
  • Mental health campaigns (with all sabbaticals) - I will be leading on male mental health.
