Everything Else

What we do

We listen to students, and work with the University to make it better. When students come to us with issues or improvements, we make sure that the University knows. New prayer rooms, student facilities, and the reissuing of exam marks were all of the things we've helped our students get just this year.

Who we are

We're run by students. A student-elected team of officers lead a plucky team of staff to make your time at City so much better. If you need good times when it's easy, and support when it's tough, we're here for you. Independent, democratic, and representative, we've got your back.
