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.

Strath Union want to help as much as we can so in partnership with Strathclyde University Foodbank Society, we are launching Strath Pantry.
We are all increasingly feeling the impact of the cost-of-living crisis as winter progresses, and this is just an extra worry that our students are dealing with on top of submission deadline and exam pressure. According to a recent survey by the National Union of Students (NUS), 11 per cent of students are now using food banks and almost all respondents to the NUS survey (96 per cent) said they were cutting back in some way, while a third of students reported living on less than £50 a month after paying their rent and bills.
Strath Union want to help as much as we can so in partnership with Strathclyde University Foodbank Society, we are launching Strath Pantry. This will initially operate in the run up to the Christmas break and once we have gathered enough donations to open it the Pantry will be available to any student that needs it without question or judgement at any time the Union is open.
We need to gather donations to be able to provide this service so if you have any unopened non-perishable items that you are not going to use then please consider donating them to this Foodbank service or if you are in position where you can afford to add an extra item of 2 to you shopping to support you fellow students then please do so.
Our Foodbank Society will be rallying the Sports Clubs and Societies for support, we will be promoting this far and wide and encourage you to do the same within your networks and we will be recruiting volunteers to help us manage it so there are lots of ways you can help.
Any items left at the end of term as we close for the winter break will be donated by the Foodbank Society to the Trussel Trust North East Glasgow Foodbank. A list of food items typically included in an emergency food box provided by a Trussel Trust foodbank can be found here. They also accept non-food items such as toiletries, sanitary products and household items, a list can be found here.
If you want to get involved with this project in any way please contact Lisa, if you want to find out more about the Foodbank Society please see their website page or email the society
