What the Wolves Union team do

What We Do

Officers

Your Union is led by a team of Student Officers, each with responsibility over a specific area relating to student life. These Officers, both full & part time, are elected by the student body each year in cross-campus elections. Your full-time Officers are:

President: Head of the Officer team and responsible for leading the Union strategically.

Academic Vice President: Responsible for ensuring students receive a smooth, high-quality academic experience and those who do not are fully assisted by the Union.

Welfare Vice President: Responsible for making sure students have a positive University experience in terms of their health & wellbeing and also lead the Union’s green & ethical strategies.

Student Experience Vice President: Responsible for ensuring students have a fun and well-rounded University experience by leading on the Union’s sporting, society & volunteering services. 

Advice & Support Centre

Numerous issues can pop up during your time at University that may disrupt your learning experience. The Advice and Support Centre (ASC) in the Union offers free, confidential and impartial advice in areas such as academic, finance, international and housing.  The ASC also has a wealth of generic information to support you in health, consumer, employment, legal and personal matters.

Student Voice

If your assignments weren’t being marked on time or you felt there weren’t enough computers available for you to complete your work, who would you speak to about it? Apart from your Union Officers you can get in touch with your course/faculty representative, a fellow student on your course/in your faculty who’s volunteered their time to listen to student views and resolve any issues as necessary.

Volunteer Central

Volunteering is an invaluable way to develop your skills, gain experience, enhance your CV and increase your employability; all whilst doing something you love. We have partnered with a number of organisations to bring you Volunteer Central, a single place where you’ll find a wide range of opportunities than can be tailored to your interests and circumstances. 

Student Media

See yourself as a budding writer or journalist? Or do you just want to give the student perspective on the latest in current affairs? Either way we’ve got the platform for you to do just that. The Thread is our student-run newspaper and is always looking for more contributors. So if you want to make your voice heard and develop key journalistic and communications skills, email contact@the-thread.co.uk to express your interest.

Societies

Lecture finished, coursework complete, revision done, if you’ve got some spare time on your hands and a hobby or interest you’d like to share with other students, we can help you join or start a society. Joining a society can not only help you meet new people but also improve communication skills and confidence. For a list of current societies click on the title above.

Health and Wellbeing

In order to get the best out of your studies you need to look after your health and wellbeing. So we've created a health and wellbeing hub that provides tips, tricks and information to keep you performing at your mental and physical peak. 

Green SU

We take part in a range of initiatives to make sure that we’re as environmentally friendly as possible. These include lobbying the University on green issues and hosting a number of societies based around caring for the environment and wildlife. So if being green is one of your passions get in touch to see how you can get involved. 

Squeezebox

It can be a tough job taking advantage of all the opportunities your Union offers, so from time to time you'll need to relax and take it easy. That’s when you can make your way over to our Squeezebox café and juice bars located at City and Walsall campuses. From coffee, smoothies and milkshakes to paninis, porridge and pizza, Squeezebox has you covered.
