The York Union, founded in 2013, is a student-run organisation that hosts engaging talks, interviews and debates contributing to the intellectual life of the University of York and the surrounding area. We aim to bring the best and most influential speakers to the north of England, competing with events typically held by the ‘golden triangle’ institutions.

Unlike similar societies at other universities, we do not charge a fee for membership. Instead, our events are open to all university students and staff, as well as members of the public. 

We are grateful to all our donors and to the many members of the university who have helped and facilitated our existence and events.
