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.

Are you an international student coming to study at Strathclyde? Would you like to get advice from someone who's been through it all and knows Glasgow? Are you interested in making a friend before you even start your course?
If you answered yes to any of the questions, register for our International Buddy Programme!
The International Buddy Programme is a peer support system that connects current students (Mentors) to new international students (Buddies - that could be you!) to help you adjust to Strathclyde student life. Your Mentor will be the first point of contact before arrival and guide you through the challenging period of starting university in a new country.
Once you have registered your interest, you will be matched with a Mentor. You can talk to them about your worries, or share your excitement with them!
We do our best to pair you up according to your arrival date, degree, and common interests. All of our Mentors will receive training so that they can offer you the guidance you need.
If you're interested in being a part of the programme, fill in the Buddy Registration Form. Applications are open until 6 September.
