Who we are

Chair: Megan Barker

We're here to help you meet new people and make friends in a sociable and friendly atmosphere, where you can relax away from study.

You may have moved away from home and don’t have your own circle of friends yet or are just needing a friendly face to chat to about issues you have not foreseen. Please contact us and we will see how we can best help.  Whilst there is a definition of a mature student that the university uses, there is no age limit on the group - if you think you are a mature student then you are!

We're a friendly and inclusive group, aimed at mature students but open to all. Whether you are technically 'mature' or just feel it you're more than welcome to join.

What we do


We represent you to the SU and the university, as well as to the NUS on a national level - please come to us with any feedback, difficulties, opinions etc, and we can make sure that you are heard and that mature students are not forgotten(!).


We offer social events and meet ups where you can come along and spend time with other mature students. We offer both daytime and evening events, as we know everyone has different commitments outside of studying. See below for further details on regular and future events.

You can come along to as many or as few events as you like - you will always be very welcome regardless. You can also contact us for representation even if you've never been to a social.


We  hold elections for our committee in October so if you are interested in joining our committee please check the available positions and elections timetable.

The full constitution for the group is available here.

For any other queries please contact us at sumature@bath.ac.uk.

It's really important that you login and join the group via the button top left - it helps to measure how wide and diverse our membership is and it's FREE. We also have a Facebook group: Mature Students which provides info on forthcoming events/activities, news and general discussion - join up and get communicating with us!
