The Students' Union is led by students, for students. Find out how you can shape the decisions we make - you've got the power!
At the heart of the Students' Union is Union Council. As the highest decision-making body within the Students' Union, it is comprised of Officers and Reps that represent a wide range of student groups, ensuring that we are the truly reflective voice of students at Hallam. There are also six elected open space reps that act as additional representatives of the student body.
Please email email@example.com if you would like to attend as an observer or require support with working on a policy.

All students are welcome to attend Union Council sessions, though we ask that you let us know in advance so we can add your attendance to the minutes and send you the Microsoft Teams link.
If there's something you're passionate about that you think we could make a difference on, then why not see if you can make it an official policy?
Any student can influence the work of the Students' Union by proposing a policy to Union Council. If you have an idea for improving the lives and education of Hallam students, let us know!
Submit your policy idea
A policy is effectively an idea that a student, or a number of students, have had which they believe will make improve the student experience at Sheffield Hallam University. Once passed, policies are binding for three years - and the Students' Union needs to work to make sure they happen! As a Students' Union we have a number of policies on various topics, the details of these and the person responsible for them can be found below...
