Reinstate membership with NUS
Submitted by YOUSSEF A.

Without any warning, earlier in the year, I found out that I could not renew my NUS membership card.

I found out that members of the university voted to leave NUS, however I, and thousands of other students were never made aware of this vote.

Due to the vote students are now unable to attain student discounts and are forced to pay for full priced items, due to a vote that they didn't know about.

I suggest that we have another vote where every student is notified on the upsides and downsides of being an NUS member.

29/05/2018 - **UPDATE**
In May 2016, the referendum for HUU to disaffiliate with the NUS was well publicised on campus and online via our website, social media and student newsletters.

In October 2017, Osaro held an event called ‘Ask NUS at Hull’ where Shakira (NUS President) was invited to speak to the Officer Team, as well as with students, so students can find out about any potential changes within the NUS, what benefits the NUS has to offer, and if the NUS is relevant to HUU. It was an open Q&A which gave students a chance to ask Shakira any questions or raise any concerns they may have about the organisation.

If you would like to have another referendum on NUS affiliation you need to conduct a petition and collect 50 signatures. If you would like more information please contact Nicole Steele, Student Voice Manager at [email protected]

You are perfectly able to get an NUS card without the university being affiliated with the NUS. Next...
