A total of 4891 votes were counted over the voting period of just today. This turnout exceeded SUSU’s target of 3000 votes.

Southampton has remained out of the NUS for 10 years and will continue to remain independent.

Both campaign teams worked extremely hard but Southampton students ultimately decided the outcome.

Over the next few days we’ll be bringing you a round-up of the past few months so stay tuned, if you can be bothered.
