Yesterday I spend time walking around campus chatting to students about what issues they face here at Sussex & living in Brighton. Here are some of the things that were mentioned..
(Hidden) Costs of university, Transport (especially buses), Bike lanes, Lack of library space, Parking and cost of parking permits, Feedback on assignments, Finding accommodation, Housing costs, Course timetabling
These issues are not only faced by the students I spoke to, but these are also issues faced by most students at Sussex. But you guys have the power to create change and the SU is here to support and help you! If you don't know where to start but really want to make life at Sussex better come along to our student forums!!! (https://www.facebook.com/events/759804191023795/)
P.s. thank you to everyone that spoke to me while you were probably trying to just grab some lunch. Students should shape how the Union works so hearing what you think about the Union, university and being a student in general helps no matter what your feedback back is <3

Did you know that the Union runs a support service which is confidential and independent of the University? Last year 95% of students surveyed said they would recommend Support & Advocacy to a friend and 80% were less worried after talking to us!

My aim in writing this is to get more students aware of what goes on in the SU, more students thinking about how we can make it better and ultimately shine a light on an important part of being an Officer.

The Students’ Union and International Student Support Team are closely working together to make sure international students feel more at home at Sussex through improved communication, better living arrangements and career development opportunities, integration with home students and that they are able to get involved with events and other social aspects of university life.
