Union of Brunel Students

The Union of Brunel Students is a democratic, student-led organisation, here to guide you and help you make the most of your university experience

We have numerous projects we set up during the year and we’re always looking for students to help us run them, so make sure you get involved in 2023/24.

Whether it may be through volunteering or if you want to try something new, we have hundreds of local opportunities available for you to gain new skills, meet like-minded people and give back to the local community.

Being a registered charity, all revenue from the Union bars, cafés and food outlets goes directly to fund student activities such as representation, campaigns, sports clubs, societies and volunteer groups.

If you are interested in volunteering for us, then keep an eye out for opportunities on our website and social media!

RAG - Helping support charities locally and nationally

Brunel RAG, Raise and Give, is responsible for all charity work in the Union of Brunel Students. Our aim is to offer every single student the chance to raise money and have fun doing so, all in the name of charity. We work with sports clubs, societies, and individual students to deliver engaging, exciting and innovative fundraising activities.

We have events both big and small, such as face painting or Team Brunel Abroad! We have even cycled to Paris and travelled to Nepal to help rebuild a playground as a part of the #TaughtNotTrafficked scheme. Equally we hold socials at our union bar and have a weekly stall out.

What you can gain from joining Brunel RAG?

If you volunteer a certain amount of hours you will get a certificate and award. Joining and helping RAG is an excellent way to boost your CV. It also gives you a wonderful place to forge new skills and meet people you wouldn’t have met before. Joining RAG is a great way to spend some of your free time at Brunel.
