Every student who enrols at the University of Winchester is automatically registered as a member of the Union, giving you access to all of our services and to an organisation who is able to represent you to the University, the community and to the world beyond. You are also given the right and power to elect the leadership of the Union and shape the Union’s direction through member feedback and annual meetings.

If for any reason you do not wish to be a member of the Union, you can opt out of membership at any time by emailing the Student Union President. You can still enjoy all of our facilities and services if you opt out, but you cannot vote in our election, have a voice at membership meetings or other democratic activity.
