University of Huddersfield Student Union Archive
This collection contains records of the Student Union and its preceding committees and organisations. There is a series of records relating to the representation of students within the Union, and how that representative worked for the benefit of the student body. This includes minutes of Student Representative Councils and Annual General Meetings. There are reports from the sabbatical team and papers that detail both the day to day support and the one off advocacy projects undertaken by the staff.

There is a long run of student media, exhibiting examples of topics of interest to the student body, and news about what was occurring in societies and student groups. There are numerous examples of publications produced for welfare and recruitment purposes, giving the unofficial union view of the organisation.
