The Students' Union is affiliated to the National Union of Students (NUS) and all students are automatically entitled to become members of the Students' Union, benefiting from its affiliation with the NUS.
Grŵp Llandrillo Menai has three elected Students' Union Presidents, one at each college: Coleg Llandrillo, Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor and Coleg Menai. Students' Union Presidents are elected towards the end of each academic year and take up their appointments in September.
As well as three Students' Union Presidents, the Students' Union also has an elected HE Officer to represent the interests of HE students. These Student Union Officers work with both College staff and students. They contribute to College committees, open forums and learner panels and represent learners on the Board of Governors.
