The Students’ Union

Students Union LogoThe University of Wolverhampton Students’ Union is an independent charity 
‌that is run by students for students.

Welcome to the University of Wolverhampton Students’ Union. We’re here for ALL students, regardless of course, mode or location of study. We’re here to represent you, advise you and make sure you get the most out of your University experience. We also want you to be equipped with the right skills so when it comes time to leave, you’re ready to take advantage of more opportunities than when you arrived. To find out how we do this, read on. 

Your Union is led by a team of Student Officers, each with responsibility over a specific area relating to student life. These Officers, both full & part time, are elected by the student body each year in cross campus elections. Your full time Officers are:

  • Habiba Amjad – President. Is the lead on representing all our students internally to the University and externally to the wider communities. They actively encourage you to be more engaged with the SU.
  • Nicole Berroa – Academic Vice President. Principally charged with the academic representation to the University and wider bodies. They will actively monitor HE issues on a local and national scale.
  • Issic Romel – Welfare Vice President. Represents the student community on issues such as: housing, health and well-being, safety and other welfare issues.
  • Rachael Healey – Student Experience Vice President – primarily based at Walsall Campus they will be responsible for supporting and delivering the ‘’student experience’’ which includes societies, events and activities.

Student Voice

If your assignments weren’t being marked on time or you felt there weren’t enough computers available for you to complete your work, who would you speak to about it? Apart from your Union Officers you can get in touch with your course/faculty representative, a fellow student on your course/in your faculty who’s volunteered their time to listen to student views and resolve any issues as necessary. To find out more about the Student Voice system including how to become a course, school or faculty representative go to www.wolvesunion.org/voice.
