As a result of the tightening of the current COVID-19 restrictions, the Students' Union is currently closed. Some coffee shops and food outlets will remain open for take away only. Details of the catering services currently available can be found on our NTU Food page. More information on the latest COVID restrictions can be found on our COVID-19 Restrictions page.


We have over 100 societies. These range from astronomy to craft, sign language, and everything in between. They're a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, follow your passion, or try something new.
