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.
The Union is a great place to meet friends, study, grab lunch or take a
break. Have a look and discover our variety of venues.

Welcome to the Wee Story Society!
Come along to engage with other writers - write new prose, share, read, and discuss the existential dread that comes hand in hand with writer's block.
The WSS has been going for 2 years! We pride ourselves on accepting anyone and everyone, of all backgrounds and levels of experience. Whether you've never written creatively before and you're interested in getting started, or you've been scribbling since you could hold a pen, all are welcome. Come and connect with fellow writers and learn something new - we aim to give emerging writers an encouraging and supportive environment, where we can feel that our stories are being heard.
With social distancing coming to a close and the world opening up, we cannot wait to see all your faces again! We will be taking it cautiously at the beginning of the semester, but once we get the go ahead we will move off of zoom and into the real world. As with other years, we will be setting up a Google Drive folder for you to submit work into for everyone to read and admire - maybe even put it onto our instagram page for the world to admire (with permission, of course!) so be sure to give us a follow!
We also will be aiming to have more established writers come in to give talks and hold Q&A's - last year we had a wonderful Q&A with Rodge Glass, published author and senior lecturer at Strathclyde, despite the limits of zoom meetings. We will also be running themed workshop events throughout the year - so be sure to keep an eye out for those! More details about these events will be announced when we know them.
