For anyone who doesn't live on campus, the cost of commuting to campus can be expensive. We've got plans to improve the student bus travel card by negotiating a price freeze, meaning more students can travel on the buses at a cheaper price.

Hundreds of students visit the SU stores on a daily basis. We're really keen that you save money in SU areas, so we're working closely with our suppliers to negotiate and snap up money saving deals for SU members.
Wondering if you are an SU member? if you are a University student, you are an SU member.
We introduced a 3 weekly cycle of “Big 5 Deals”, providing big discounts on items that students wanted, that tied into the academic cycle of the student population. We saved students a total of £4876
We're creating a SU saver card which will get the lucky card holder exclusive deals in SU venues. We've got a limited amount of cards, but get your hands on one and they'll save you plenty of Wonga.
University is pretty expensive. Buying books is another thing to worry about paying for and since we're paying quite a lot of money to be at University, we're wondering why we have to pay for course text books?
We're aiming to make paying for course text books a thing of the past by introducing e-books on every course. It will save students more cash and save the hassle of having to try and flog books on ebay when you're done with them.
Subzero, the SU Store, Everything Essex, Moa, The SU bar: whatever SU venue students choose to spend your money in, we want to show where it goes.
