CUSU (Cambridge University Students’ Union) is the university-wide students’ union for Cambridge students. It is made up of college students’ unions (like the UCS) and is led by a team of six elected officers.  Most students first encounter CUSU at the CUSU Freshers’ Fair where incoming freshers can learn more about university-level societies and campaigns.

The UCS Vice President, Natalie Chapman, attends meetings of CUSU Council, the decision-making body of CUSU, on behalf of Clare students. We try to keep all Clare members up to date about what CUSU is doing, since CUSU campaigns and decisions can be important to life in the wider University. A summary of our votes from Easter Term 2019, written by Natalie, can be found here:


You can find a lot more information about CUSU on their website.
