The composition of Council comprises up to 20 members: up to 15 independent members, of whom eight are nominated by the Providing Bodies of the four Colleges; the Vice-Chancellor & Chief Executive; one member nominated by the University Senate; two elected staff representatives; and the President of the Students' Union. The current Chair of Council is Sir David Bell.

Council members attend Council meetings, normally held four times a year, and are appointed for a term of three years, which may be renewed for two further three-year periods and, exceptionally, the Chair and Vice-Chair only may be appointed for a final two-year term. The positions are not remunerated.

Members are appointed to bring their skills, knowledge and expertise. They are in sympathy with the vision and mission of the University and the ethos of the four Colleges. Members of Council act in a voluntary capacity and abide by the Code of Conduct and Statement of Responsibilities.
