Your Students' Union

Who we are

The Students’ Union is a democratic organisation run by students for students with over 22,000 members, to represent student views to the University at all levels and to provide support services for its members.

Medway students

Medway Students are those who are attending the University of Greenwich while studying at the Medway campus. Because we share that campus with the UNiversity of Kent, Medway students are represented by GK Unions, which is Greenwich and Kent Unions together. For all the events happening in Medway campus visit the GK Unions website.

NUS extra card

Now that you are part of the student community you can get a year of amazing discounts by owning an NUS Extra discount card. Check out the offers and order your card online here.

Getting around

We are split into three main campuses and it might be a bit confusing in the beginning, but we have gathered all the information you need together in one place so you'll never get lost. Click here for this page.
