Student Hubs is just the tip of the iceberg. We support student leaders in UK universities to learn, connect and do something to tackle social issues. We do this by facilitating volunteering, skilled placements, project incubation and critical engagement events.
Currently, we have Hubs in Bristol, Brookes, Cambridge, West London, Kingston, Oxford, Southampton, Warwick and Winchester. Read on to find out how to start a Hub near you.

Great for Universities
A Hub contributes to the overall student experience. Students have the opportunity to improve their employability skills through experiential learning and opportunities to engage with the world beyond the university campus.
A Hub can demonstrate the university’s desire to serve the local community and increase the university’s public benefit. Through the Hub, universities will demonstrate leadership in the local community, contributing to the role of the university and its students as positive agents for change.
In the long term, local Hubs help build a culture of philanthropy and giving back. US research shows that students who learn how to give back while they are at university are more likely to give to the causes they care about in the future. Given the long term fundraising needs of the Higher Education sector, universities have a vested interest in ensuring they are educating tomorrow’s philanthropists.

Build a community
Build a community of like minded social leaders at your university and make ‘doing good’ the norm, not the exception. A Hub brings together students making positive social change and provides easy opportunities for anyone to get involved.
Do more good
Support other students to do more to tackle key social and environmental challenges - run conferences to inspire others, start up projects to tackle community need and devise innovative solutions to local and global issues.
Access a network
Having a Hub links you to like-minded students across the Hub Network, which comes together every summer to plan and collaborate. Having a Hub also gives you access to our programmes, from Schools Plus to Social Impact Careers.
We have an established method for setting up a new Hub that is tailored to the student body and the community. We fit our Hub model of inspiring, connecting and supporting students to your University landscape, filling in the gaps and supporting social action where it is most needed.
