The bye laws are a set of rules and regulations about how we get things done, for examples how elections are run or our council meetings

Code of Conduct
Every student is a member DSU and as such we expect a certain level of behaviour that is outlined in this document
Delegation of Authority
Students’ Unions are complicated organisations ad this document sets out how decisions are made and by whom within the organisation. It sets out the decision making framework between students, officers, staff and trustees
The Union sets out its long term aims every three or four years, what we want to achieve to enhance the student experience for students at De Montfort University. This is our strategic plan.
Impact Report and Audited Accounts
Every year the Union is required to show how we spend the money we receive from the university and how the work we do positively impacts all of our members. We show this through our Impact Report and Audited Accounts.
