We are Strath Union, your Students’ Union - the beating heart of activity for students on Strathclyde campus since 1964.
We run events year-round where you can let loose, let go, just throw a couple shapes and put your skills on show.
We provide free and confidential advice for students, covering academic support, wellbeing and more.
University is all about finding friends, finding community, and finding yourself.
We exist to represent all students at the University of Strathclyde. We make sure your voice is heard across the University and beyond.
Enhance your CV, develop skills, find a part-time job and get more involved with your local community.
We've been leading the way in developing projects, campaigns, and student societies to better support students.

We are StrathWind Racing!
The society was formed in 2018 by a group of PhD students who all study at the Wind & Marine Energy Systems & Structures CDT here at Strathclyde and who all share a passion for renewable energy. Growing on our successes from last year we are hoping to bring in new students and ideas from across the university - from different backgrounds, courses and years – to help us achieve a fully working Wind Powered Vehicle by August for the international race event in The Netherlands (www.racingaeolus.online).
The challenge of this race is that the vehicle must be powered BY the wind and drive INTO the wind! Teams at previous races have reached ground-speeds of up to 114% of the wind-speed, while travelling into the wind!
Most of the team is working within wind energy research and so this is a great place to learn and apply the engineering knowledge that you will gain at university. We are also keen to get non-engineers into the team looking at sponsorship deals and budgeting as well as social-media and publicising the team.
