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.

Are you a woodwind, brass, percussion, or string bass player? If so, join the Concert Band and keep playing whilst at university in a fun, active and sociable band!
Established in 1990, the Strathclyde University Concert Band is comprised of current students, staff, and alumni of the university, as well as students from other institutions. Under the musical direction of conductor Chris Mitchell, the band has grown in recent years and has won a number of high awards at the Scottish Concert Band Festival and the National Concert Band Festival along with presenting several concerts a year across the Greater Glasgow area. We accept woodwind, brass, percussion and string bass players.
We rehearse on Thursday evenings from 5:30-7:30pm in the Royal College Assembly Hall on campus. You can also join our Facebook group, used to share the latest information with our active members.
Support the band by becoming a member of SUCB for the 2022/23 year. Memberships are now available at the following rates:

In March, we held our first Band Camp since the pandemic, travelling to Dounans Centre in Aberfoyle for a weekend of rehearsals, dancing and late night karaoke. Thanks to everyone who came along - we hope you had as much fun as the committee did! A big thank you to the Alumni Fund and Strathclyde Union who helped us fund the trip - very much appreciated as all players greatly improved over the course of the weekend!
We went on to hold our first joint concert in over two years with our friends at the Strathclyde University Jazz Orchestra on 31st March. It was brilliant to get back playing to an audience again - thank you to everyone who attended! The evening was recorded, and the film is now available further down this page.
After the examination period, we held our Summer concert, again with our friends at the Strathclyde University Jazz Orchestra, on Sunday 29th May. This evening was again recorded, and will be available in due course.
Band will soon be starting back for the 22/23 academic year and we look forward to seeing players old and new when we return in September!
