This page contains copies of YUSU’s By-Laws and their Appendices, our currently Active Policy as well as content from Annual General Meetings and Impact Reports across the last few years.

Governing Documents

These are YUSU’s currently Active Policy (email if you have your own Idea to change YUSU!), as well as our Constitution and By-Laws – these are all things that guide us as an organisation. You'll also find copies of our Operational Policies.

In August 2017, YUSU incorporated as the University of York Students Union and is now governed by the Memorandum and Articles of Association.  This document is due for review by members, trustees and University Council 2022 or earlier. The Memorandum and articles are consistent with and operated alongside the University of York Ordinance 4 and the students union Code of Practice.

The bye-laws shown are for the old charity, they will be updated over the summer to reflect any changes.


Contained here are a range of reports and studies carried out by or for YUSU.

Final Accounts

Here are copies of YUSU’s financial accounts.
