About the Students' Union

CUSU is your Students' Union. It exists to represent your interests and ensure you have a say in how you experience University, whether you are an undergraduate or postgraduate. Every Cambridge student is automatically a member of Cambridge University Students' Union - and that includes you.

CUSU works by bringing together students from all colleges and departments to campaign for positive change in Cambridge. As well as CUSU, you also are also represented at College level by JCRs and MCRs, and by elected student reps in your Faculties.
