Liverpool Hope University - Students' Union

Students' Union

Students at the university are represented by the Liverpool Hope Students' Union. Although there are several campus sites for the university, the Students' Union offices are located in the Alexander Jones Building at the Hope Park Campus.

In 2011 the Students' Union underwent a major Governance re-structure both to comply with Charity Law and become a more engaging organisation. The new Constitution was passed by the University Governing Council on 22 November 2011.

The union is affiliated to the National Union of Students and sends two delegates to National Conference each year. In 2012 Liverpool Hope Students' Union was named by the National Union of Students as the ‘Small Students’ Union of the Year’ in the 2012 NUS Awards.

Students can represent themselves through the three Union Forums and also elect 17 Student and 4 Liberation Officers to specific positions. The main representatives are the three Sabbatical Officers who are also full-time paid staff members of the Union. The election process is normally contested in March/April, with successful candidates assuming office in July.
