Students make up a significant proportion of the local community. The Students’ Union works closely with other Students’ Unions, organisations and the local Council to ensure the needs of students and residents are being met.
If you would like to ask a question or raise a concern about a community issue, you can contact
the Community Officer on firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Students’ Union Advice and Representation Centre.
Student Community Partnership
The Student Community Partnership (SCP) is made up of Bath & North East Somerset Council and Student and Staff representatives from the University of Bath and Bath Spa University.
The SCP provides a forum for liaison between the Universities, their Students' Unions and the Council on matters relating to students and the local community. This includes accommodation, transport, welfare, community relations, community safety and environmental issues.
A range of Students' Union officers and staff are involved in the work of the Student Community partnership. If you have any questions or comments, please contact the Students’ Union Community Officer on email@example.com or come along to the Advice and Representation Centre
Voting in the local community
We strongly encourage students who are eligible to register to vote in the UK to do so. Students are eligible to vote in local government elections both at home and their term time address, although in voting for a Member of Parliament in the General elections, you can only vote in one. Students make up a significant number of votes in the local area and the more that vote, the more that politicians pay attentions to students needs. Find out more about student voting and how to register to vote.
