The Students’ Union at Bournemouth University (SUBU) is the best place to help you start a conversation with over 18,000 students!

Many of our students are moving away from home for the first time and are deciding which brands best suit their needs. This presents the perfect opportunity to showcase your brand and create long-term brand loyalty with this highly sought after demographic. SUBU is affiliated with Bournemouth University, giving us exclusivity to allow clients to market to BU students. SUBU is a brand that BU students acknowledge and trust, we have a deep knowledge of our student population and will work with you to fine tune your messages. Our media channels include social media, paper advertising and on campus promotions. We also run our annual Fresher’s Fair which is the biggest on campus student event of the year and an ideal opportunity to meet many of the 5,000 new BU students, please see our Fresher’s Fair page for more information.
