Official Constitution

The Constitution is a document that governs how the Society is to be run. It can only be changed by a successful motion at a General Meeting, and changes also need to be approved the Bristol SU Societies’ Executive Board.

  • April 2017 (Current) – Approved on 8 June 2017 by University of Bristol Students’ Union Societies’ Executive Board
  • April 2016


The committee produces or updates policies every year to create guidelines for running our activities. However, not all policies are published here, and these may not always be the latest versions.

Please note that the annual membership fee is non-refundable, except in exceptional circumstances and at the discretion of the committee.

Items marked with a * may be waiting for official approval.

Annual General Meeting Minutes

Every year, the Society has an Annual General Meeting (AGM), and all our members are welcome. Here, we elect a new committee, and vote on any proposed changes to the Constitution. We send details of the AGM, and any other General Meetings, to members in the newsletter.


The executive committee run the Society’s day-to-day activities, and is chaired by the President.


Our financial documents are available to current members on request from the incumbent Treasurer (
