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:

  1. Engaging the totality of the student body
  2. Bringing the union closer to self-sufficiency
  3. 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.
