The NCH Student Union (NCHSU) is a student-led organisation at the heart of the NCH student experience. The NCHSU exists to promote the interests of the student body as well as planning social and extracurricular activities and providing support to student clubs and societies.
This union has three aims:
- Engaging the totality of the student body
- Bringing the union closer to self-sufficiency
- Building a social hub in college
Upon joining NCH you will automatically be enrolled in the NCHSU and able to take advantage of the benefits that this entails.
Student Union roles
NCHSU is run by eight union officers, who represent every student and their interests throughout their time at NCH. Officers are elected by their fellow students and serve a one-year term in their role. Elections are held during Michaelmas term for the following roles, each focusing on a different area of student life:
