Studying in autumn 2020 during coronavirus

Students' Union

Our Students' Union in autumn 2020

During the coronavirus outbreak we’ve made a few changes but we’ll still be active as ever this autumn, working remotely to help you get the best out of uni.

For the first few months of term we’ll be offering most of our events and support services online, here's what you need to know about our plans.

Updates to our events and services

We organise hundreds of different activities on campus throughout the year and that won't change in autumn 2020 - even if they happen a little differently.

  • We're building an exciting welcome programme and giving our student groups the resources they need to host events online too.
  • We're creating online spaces for communities to meet up and we're looking at hosting small, face-to-face events when it's safe to do so.
  • Our advice services will be available through video appointments and live chat, and we're looking to offer our Welcome Desk online.
  • We'll keep you up to date with what's happening and what our Student Officers are up to through our social media and website.

We are Students' Union of the Year

Winners of the Students' Union of the Year at the NUS Awards 2017, Middlesex Students' Union (MDXSU), is here to make sure you get the best out of your time at university. MDXSU will make sure your voice is heard on the issues you care about. We also offer loads of chances for you to meet new people, develop your skills and try new things.

MDXSU is constantly throwing parties and events, so there's plenty to do after dark. It might be a collaboration with a society - which is an opportunity to see if you'd like to join it!

Campaigns led by students

Your Students' Union is there to make your voice heard. We'll give you support to take the lead on issues that matter to you, from more vegan food in the canteen to better support for homeless people in the local area.

Our students' past campaign successes include lobbying the local council to resettle 50 Syrian refugees in our borough and a free bike hire scheme on campus.

Advice and support

We want every Middlesex student to have the best experience possible. But we understand that issues might come up with your studies, where you're living or how you're feeling.

The Students' Union offers free, confidential and independent advice and support for students facing problems with their academic work and other challenges.

How your Students' Union can help

Your MDXSU representatives

Your reps are all students and are elected to their roles through student-only votes. They work with staff across the University and Students' Union to create changes that students want to see – on campus and beyond.

Your reps include a President and three Vice Presidents who work full-time for you and represent all Middlesex students on campus, locally and nationally. There are also six School Voice Leaders and a Student Voice Leader on each year of every course.

Student voice at MDXSU

There’s a lot of different things to get involved with at the Students' Union, from societies to campaigns, student jobs to leadership roles, pretty much something for everyone!
