Covid-19 Update: There will be a Covid-19 specific meeting of Assembly held on Thursday 14th May. Papers and minutes from this meeting will be available on this webpage so please check back for more details. As is the case with most organisations across the country, Durham SU is operating under significantly different circumstances than usual, and so please bear with us if we take longer to respond. For more information, read here.


Assembly is a body made up of a cross-section of student representatives elected by you! They all vote at the Assembly meetings to ensure your interests are represented through shaping policy (things they want the Union to change or address) and holding Officers accountable.

Any student can submit an idea or policy to Assembly and any student can attend to speak for or against an idea. Come along and be part of the conversation!

If you’d like to find out more about how you can submit a policy to Assembly, get in touch with our Policy Manager here

Please note, any student can submit a motion to Assembly. Motions must be submitted to Governance & Grants committee no less than 10 clear days before the next meeting.
