Student experience

Students working and relaxing in Quad Theatre Cafe

Marjon Students' Union is an essential part of your university experience, and it's not just about the social life. We sit on every major panel and decision-making board at the University to ensure the students always have a voice and that it is heard, and that your student experience is the best it can possibly be whilst you are here at Marjon.

We are an independent charity and have an extremely strong partnership with the University and we are always looking for that to grow. We know that everyone wants the same thing for our students, to help you to get the most out of student life, in terms of your studies, friendships, extra-curricular experiences and sport.

One of our favourite parts of our job is the planning of major social events including freshers' week, graduation ball, rag week, Leavers' Dinner and May Ball. We also oversee a very wide range of societies and sports clubs, and we are always encouraging the set-up of new societies so that there really is something for everyone.

 

We care about making a difference for our students and campaign for things you want. We were the first university in the UK to end period poverty,  and in every bathroom there are sanitary products for you to use, for free. We run the #NeverOk campaign which is tackles discrimination and harassment of any kind. It has developed and now has many branches including promoting safe sex and providing free condoms in bathrooms by Barjon. We also work with on campaigns around mental health and the environment, and we trialled the first ever meat-free Mondays in the Hub restaurant due to student demand!

At Marjon we can get to know you as a person. This goes both ways as you will get the chance to know us as well which makes it easier for you to come to us with problems. We look forward to welcoming you into our community.
