The Student Council decides the work of Cambridge SU. It passes motions mandating our team to undertake pieces of work, and appointments to union committees. It also receives updates from sabbatical officers and the Campaigns, allowing your representatives to ask questions about the work of Cambridge SU.


The Student Council is made up of elected representatives from across the University. These are:

  • The eight Cambridge SU Sabbatical Officers
  • The SU representatives for Double Time Students, Mature Students, Part-Time Students, and Student Families
  • 2 representatives of each SU Campaign (or 1 where the Campaign has a sabbatical representative); 1 Undergraduate and 1 Postgraduate
  • 2 representatives per College of the University; 1 for each J/MCR except where there is only one common room in a college
  • 2 Academic Representatives per School of the University; 1 Undergraduate and 1 Postgraduate


You just need a proposer and a seconder to send a motion to Student Council for discussion. If you’d like to know more about the format of Council motions, or have other questions about submitting one, email You can also view example motions and formatting guides for guidance.
