Women students, welcome to your digital hub!

This space is for self-defining women students, and those whose gender identity includes woman all or some of the time.

This is your one stop place for all our women students to use our resources, to come together and bring positive change to women students' University experiences and life beyond University.

Celebrating stories and achievements of fierce women throughout our history with the aim to go beyond the traditional themes and instead celebrating diversity and drawing inspiration from the women of the past to create real change in our present and future.
