Formed in 1971, the Cambridge University Students’ Union (CUSU) is a student-led organization that aims to represent the interests students at the University of Cambridge. The Students’ Union brings together its representatives from different colleges and departments at the university to enact meaningful change at the university, and properly serve its students.
The Cambridge University Students’ Union is comprised of 6 sabbatical officers that serve as the core of the organization, and lead much of the work they do. That said, all university students are able to debate important issues and raise motions for the group to consider at the CUSU council.
The Cambridge University Students’ Union also offers welfare programs to university students, such as free sexual health services and an advice service for those seeking extra guidance. They also offer resources to various societies such as volunteering opportunities, mail and car systems, and administrative services.
Open meetings are held for anyone who wants to raise issues and discuss potentially starting campaigns. Alternatively, there are team meetings that focus on different facets of student life. There are always campaigns to volunteer for as well as union-sponsored campus events to attend. And of course, any student can run for one of the numerous annually elected CUSU positions.
