Aston Students' Union is a democratic organisation that is run by its members.


That means that you have a masssive say in how the Students' Union works. Aston Students' Union's Officers are Aston students, elected by other Aston students, and they lead the direction of the Union. But it's important that all students are able to contribute to the Union's success.

To ensure that every Aston student has the opportunity to influence the Union, Student Council meetings are held throughout the year, where any member can attend to raise ideas, debate policy and vote on what they want their leaders and Union to do.

Up to 200 Aston students may attend each Student Council meeting, which usually take place in the evening at Aston Students' Union. Upcoming meetings can be found below:


Any Aston student can submit a motion to Union Council. The documents below explain more about how you can submit a motion, and what it could look like.

Student Council Minutes & Agendas

Minutes are taken at each Student Council so that current and future students have a record of what was discussed and decided at each meeting. These minutes are always provisional until they are approved at the next council meeting. Below you will be able to access the approved minutes from the last 5 Student Council meetings.


If you have any questions about these documents, or would like to view older council minutes, then please contact the Student Voice team by emailing
