Student Council

Student Council looks at student concerns and tells the Union what it should be doing.

There are two student councils:
A Kent Student Council where Canterbury and Rochester officers meet.
A Surrey Student Council where Epsom and Farnham officers meet.

*The Union provides transport between campuses for Student Council.
