How do you Change Things?

Here at the Guild, we put you in charge.

As we’re a student-led organisation, over 34,000 students at the University of Birmingham can decide exactly what we do. If there’s something that you want to improve at the Guild, the University or in your community, you’ve got the power to Change Things. In fact, there’s nothing that we like more than working with you to make sure everyone gets the best from Birmingham!

You can make a change in a number of different ways: by asking your Officer Team to work on something, by contacting your Student Rep to make a change on your course, by running your own campaign supported by the Guild, by submitting an idea to change something through Your Ideas or by running in an election to become a representative yourself!

So, what are you waiting for? Everyone’s got the power to make a difference – get started using the links below






To ensure that you get what you need from us, when you need it, we have created a set of promises which we will always aim to deliver.

Meet your officer team

Every year, you elect fellow students to your Officer Team, who represent you and lead your union. Each Officer has their own roles and remit which you can view below. You have a chance to make sure your elected Officers are doing what they said they will, by attending Officer Question Time held each term.
