Our staff offices are located in CX118. That’s on the first floor of Tait building, Northampton Square – next to our shop.

Our reception will be closed between Monday 16th April and Friday 27th April 2018. During this time The Students’ Union advice service is still open. Sorry for the faff!

I need to see someone, what do I do?

Let us know before you say hello! We want to be here when you need us, and as we’re a small team, you might find yourself popping in to find the staff member you need is away from their desk. Your best bet is to let us know you’re coming, so we can make sure we’re here to help. Get in touch via email at, or social media @cityunisu.

I’ve ordered an NUS card, where do I pick it up?

It's well worth ordering an NUS extra card to experience over two hundred UK student discounts. Once you've placed an order, you will be notified when the card is ready for collection from our Students' Union reception. 

Why is your mascot a carrot?

It’s a long (but good) story. Pop in and we’ll tell you all about it over a cup of tea.

How do I contact and access the Union Advice?
