Durham SU is owned by students. This means that every year students come together and vote for your next student representatives and Trustees in campus-wide elections. Each elected role has a different purpose, but all are held and voted in by students. If you are interested in running for a position, or finding out more you can register your interest here.
The main 2020-21 election period will take place from 11 January (when nominations open) until 25 February (when voting closes).
Nominations are now open! You can nominate yourself using the nominations forms here: Student Officers, Student Trustees, or NUS Delegates. Nominations are open until 17:00 29 January. You may self-nominate and do not need to collect further expressions of support from students. Know someone you think would make a great candidate? You can 'nominate a mate' here.
If you would like to find out more about the role or the election process you can attend one of our information sessions, to book onto a session please email our Campaign Coordinator: email@example.com.
