Through representation, the Students' Union ensures that all our students are represented and heard at all levels of the Students’ Union and the University.

We try to enrich the student experience through democracy and representation, which is why we have such diverse areas of representation.

The different areas of representation:

  • AGMs - Annual General Meetings are a yearly ratification of Union accounts and affiliations. 

  • Student Advice Service - We offer free and independent support on any issue relating to your academic experience at Solent.

  • Campaigns - Organised activities for awareness and change.
