About us


Looking back at 2014

2014 has been another big year for the Students' Union, here we round up some of the big events and achievements our students, officers and staff have been involved in.

Students' Union to become a Living Wage employer

After students at Sussex voted to make the Students’ Union an accredited living wage employer, we're committing to achieve that by 2017.

Get involved in One World Week 2015

Students and staff are invited to submit applications for events and activities to feature as part of the University's second ever One World Week.

Summary results from Students' Union sexual violence survey

The survey's results reveal that we still have a long way to go in raising awareness about consent and healthy relationships.
