Your Students' Union

Your Students’ Union

From societies and sports to volunteering, training and workshops, Bucks Students' Union has a lot to offer, and it’s mostly free. The Students’ Union is run by students for students, and also provides a friendly advice service and representation scheme to ensure you can express your views on a wide range of topics and issues.

Visit the Bucks New University Students’ Union website to see the full list of societies and clubs you can get involved in.

Your Union

When you enroll on a course at Bucks, you automatically become a member of our Students' Union. It’s not compulsory, and there are no fees involved, but there are so many good reasons to be a member, like having access to a vast range of services, benefits and discounts – and opportunities to have fun, express yourself and get involved with like-minded people.

For example, we offer The Big Deal, a unique package of free participation in entertainment, sports, societies, and all kinds of recreational and developmental activities.

We will entertain you

Bucks Students’ Union runs The Venue, a student-focused social space comprising The Lounge and a 1,100-capacity event space for the hottest live touring bands, renowned DJ club nights, and all kinds of other shenanigans including comedy, theatre and exhibitions.

Plus, it’s an amazingly good-value bar, right in the heart of our High Wycombe Campus. With free internet access, it’s a great place to hang out, enjoy our snack menu and stay connected during the day – and then an award-winning entertainment venue every single night. And the best bit? As a member of the Students’ Union, it’s all free (apart from the food and drink!)

The Big Deal

Bucks is the only university in the UK to offer free access to such a diverse and exciting range of activities – all to enrich the university experience.

We offer FREE events and entertainment, additional skills workshops, sports, recreational activities, societies and paid student rep schemes. All at one of the top 10 Students’ Unions in the UK.

During Freshers’ Fortnight you will get a free wristband which will give you access to every event, from cultural nights with free food to gig nights. It's a big deal!

Whatever you’re into

From dance to drama, and from watersports to hockey – there are almost as many personal passions as there are students at Bucks, so you’re bound to find a society or sports club that floats your boat or stirs your creativity. And even in the unlikely event there isn’t a club or society that satisfies your extra-curricular cravings, we’ll help you set one up!
