The Role of CUSU

Coventry Uni’s student union (CUSU) is a one-stop shop for all of your needs while you’re studying at university. It’s a charity that acts on behalf of students and is run by Coventry uni students with the sole purpose of improving the lives of students. In fact, full-time officers are elected to spend a sabbatical year working with the student union, while faculty reps are elected into voluntary positions alongside studying to ensure representation within each faculty. Not only that but you can access a range of support services including academic, financial and personal support anytime you need it.
