Hello and welcome to The Mancunion‘s May Senate Liveblog.

Senate is the highest decision-making body in the SU and we’ll be here to bring you all the news as it happens.

On the agenda tonight we have: Reclaim The Night reform, plans to oppose ResLife, potential changes to joint degrees, and a motion proposing more support for BME students amongst others.

It could be a controversial one, an amendment to the ResLife bill could effectively change the whole motion if passed. The amendment is proposed by Fatima Abid, General Secretary which could prove to be her lasting influence on UoM as she leaves in Summer. The Mancunion understands that Community Officer Shamima Khonat could present it.

Stay with us and catch all our updates below.
