SU Officer Elections 2021
The SU Officer elections are one of the biggest events in the student calendar! It is your chance to make an impact on the experience of Sheffield students in the year ahead.
Sheffield Students Union is a charity run by, and for, students. Each year, a team of students are democratically elected to lead the SU for the following year. They are paid a salary to work full time, making sure that our 30,000 students are heard and have what they need to learn and thrive whilst at University.
You will also be electing 2 Student Trustees, and voting in referenda!

You Run Your SU
All students of the University of Sheffield are full members of the Students' Union, and they set its operational, political, financial and strategic direction.
As a member of the SU, you engage in all areas of democratic decision making. Whether that is electing diverse leaders who represent your interests, or participation in decision-making through referenda, petitions, debates, surveys and discussions.
