The Guild of Students


What is the Guild of Students?

If you’re a student at the University of Birmingham, then you’re automatically a member of the Guild of Students, your students’ union.

The Guild is here to help you get the best from Birmingham!

As a charity and the students’ union for more than 30,000 students, the Guild represents you to the University and other organisations regarding your academic and university experience. The Guild is your voice on the issues that matter most to you.

Getting involved

At the Guild of Students you can:

  • Have fun at the various events during Welcome Week and throughout the year, including the legendary weekly club night Fab N Fresh
  • Meet new people and follow new interests by joining one of over 200 students groups (from Bhangra or Tea Appreciation, to Skydiving)
  • Find part time work or volunteering opportunities to help you develop skills outside of study that will increase your employability

All to help make your time at Birmingham special!
