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.

Eat & Drink
The home of motorsport activities at Strathclyde.

What We Do
We run fun and friendly motorsport events which welcome motoring enthusiasts of all experience levels. All the equipment you need for a great day out on track will be provided and there will always be a friendly face on hand to offer you the support you need to get started.
The club takes part in a range of different motorsport disciplines. From previous years we have expanded from just Go-Karting to the likes of electric dirtbike racing at IMotoX and simulator racing events at VR Sims. We are always on the lookout for more motorsport events to involve ourselves in, so if you have an idea then please do not hesitate to let us know!
