Hull University Students' Union is a charity that is inspired by a mission to enhance the life of every person studying at the University of Hull by bringing them together, offering them opportunities to develop, as well as to represent and empower them to make change.

Its vision is to be a sector-leading students' union in both academic and non-academic representation that reflects existing diversity and delivers the best possible services to members.

Students’ unions have been in existence since 1884 — and since its establishment in 1927 — Hull's student union has been at the heart of university life in the city. Over the years it has grown and developed, and the ground floor of Student Central is now home to a shop, a bar, two food outlets, and the student nightclub and music venue, Asylum.

The union's values are to be innovative, inclusive, positive, fun and supportive and are physically visible throughout the organisation through murals and lanyards. The senior leadership team lives these values by setting examples in the way they work, remaining visible, open and transparent, and always seeking to improve ways of working for staff.

No one day is ever the same at Hull University Students' Union — and although it admits that may sound clichéd — it is true. One day the team might be working on the climate emergency, and the next it may be inviting big names such as rapper KSI or the band Scouting for Girls to perform in Asylum.

Living through and now with the Pandemic has been tough, personally and professionally for all of us, I am proud of how everyone has responded and adapted to unfamiliar and often worrying situations. As an organisation we continued to worked tirelessly for our members whilst supported one another. It is clear to see how everyone is living our renewed values, we are a Supportive, Inclusive, Innovative, Positive and Fun organisation. I along with our Trustees and Senior Leaders am committed to building and shaping HUSU for the future, as a diverse, inclusive and fair organisation and without a doubt employee engagement is at the heart of this
