Whether you’re exploring Cornwall’s beaches, completing assignments or looking forward to the next academic year, the SU is open to students over the summer.
You can find help with organising student groups and activities, finding out who your course rep is, getting advice on academic issues, consumer rights, finances and accommodation with your SU team.
You are welcome to pop into our SU spaces during our opening hours to chill out with your presidents, ask any questions and find out what’s happening. If our spaces aren’t open, you’ll find the team available online, just email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Your president team
Summer means your elected presidents start their term at the students’ union. Their training and development takes place now to ensure your elected representatives are ready to welcome you in September with their manifesto points in place.
Without further ado, meet your president team.
As a member of the SU, you have access to a free, impartial advice service. You can get help and guidance with finance, accommodations, academic issues and consumer rights.
If you don’t have the time to book an appointment or aren’t sure where to start, our advice resources are an amazing collection of documents and guidance that will help you.
What do you want to know more about?
Finance & Budgeting
Whether it will be your first welcome or more of a welcome back, we’ve got plenty of activities, ideas and opportunities coming up in September.
For any information about term dates, course details or university questions, you need to contact your institution.
For all things welcome events, activities and Welcome Fayre, visit our SU Welcome hub.
Mental Health Resources
You might find that time away from your academic routine can be difficult, especially if your life at university is very different to your life at home.
First of all, if you are struggling to maintain your usual day-to-day activity, speak to your GP as soon as possible.
If you are looking for ways to help yourself, our mental health resources offer lots of options to try out. Some options are only available to you as a student (including during your breaks!) whereas others are more general.
Alongside mental health, you need to take care of your general welfare and might want to help others too. Our Welfare pages signpost you to some of the services and people who can help you with a range of questions or issues, including:
Sexual Health and Consent
Faith and Liberation
Hate crime reporting
Problems in the Community
Drugs and Alcohol
Finally, we hope you have an enjoyable summer and hope to see you soon!
