Referenda are the way that we make big decisions about the future of the Students’ Union.

Voting for Referenda will open online at at 10am on Monday 25th February and close at 5pm on Thursday 28th February.

This year's proposals are:

Should Sheffield SU remain affiliated to the National Union of Students (NUS)? and Should the SU create the positions of 'Societies Councillor' and 'Sports Councillor' on SU Council?

These proposals are now available here.

Come along to the Referenda 2019 Debate on Wednesday 20th February 2019 5pm-7pm in the Activities and Sports Zone in the SU to hear what other students think about these big questions and to have your say!

You can view the referenda regulations here.

The SU’s Democracy and Campaigns team are on hand to help with further information on how you can get involved. You can speak to or message the SU team:

Contact or call into the office, behind the Activities Zone Desk next to Coffee Rev in the SU.
