The Guild has a proud history of making changes at Birmingham.

These are the campaigns that students at Birmingham are already running. If you agree with their aims, then get involved!

Not On

Sexual Harassment - its #noton

Not On is a joint campaign, launched by the University of Birmingham and the Guild of Students, to raise awareness of sexual harassment issues.

The aim of the campaign is to promote an environment in which sexual harassment of any kind is deemed to be wholly unacceptable and to enable students to have the knowledge, ability and confidence to report and take action against all forms of sexual harassment.

Not On Ambassadors

Following the success of the Not On campaign in recent years, we’re really excited to have won funding from the University to recruit 4 ‘Not On’ Student Ambassadors! Our Ambassadors will be a point of contact for students with concerns relating to the area of sexual harassment and assault.

They’ll also be rolling out a one hour workshop that looks at consent in relation to sexual harassment, showing students how to look after themselves and their friends on a night out. You can arrange workshops for UoB Student Societies, Committees, Teams or Groupshere. Please note, workshops can only be delivered to established groups of students at present (maximum 20 at any one time).

*All groups that complete the workshop will receive the ‘Not On Approved’ stamp which can be used on all your communications.*

In time we will be offering open access workshops for individual students to book on to, for more information about this please contact

“You report, we support”

The University of Birmingham is committed to ensuring a safe and supportive environment for all students, and to responding appropriately to any incidents of sexual assault. As part of our commitment to the safety and wellbeing of our students, the University has introduced an on-line reporting tool. This reporting tool has been designed specifically for students who have been sexually assaulted. Support and advice will be available to any student that reports an incident of sexual assault.

Fossil Free

The Divest-Invest Movement is an international campaign to remove the ‘social licence’ that fossil fuel, tobacco and arms companies have from their connections to large organisations like banks, governments and universities. People and Planet estimate that UK Universities have £5.2bn invested in fossil fuels, through their endowments and pensions. This amounts to £1,804 for every HE student.

Fossil Free is a campaign run by UoB Environmental Society and supported by the Guild which is asking the university to remove its investments from the fossil fuel industry, and reinvest them in renewable energy and sustainable ethical projects.
