Student communities

Here at York, we have tailored support for different groups of students that we refer to as communities. We offer a range of services for these communities to help every student get the most out of their University experience.

One of the benefits of being part of a student community is being able to access the programme of events we hold throughout the year. You can check out upcoming events open to student communities through the student events webpage and app. 

To access information about further support available to members of these communities, please visit the relevant link below:
