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 maintains a complaints procedure which we use alongside other key Union policies in order to ensure that we continue to offer a welcoming and inclusive experience.
Unfortunately, sometimes things go wrong - below is a brief overview of how issues may be resolved. Our full complaints procedure is available.

This is for issues which are straightforward and can easily be resolved without or with very little investigation needing to take place. They include the kind of thing that would result in an apology, a reasonable explanation of why something has or hasn't happened or another simple solution.
You can make a complaint of this kind to any member of staff but it is normally best to approach the person involved or their line manager. The details of your complaint will be logged and you will normally have an outcome within 5 days at the latest.
If your complaint is more complicated or requires us to look into the circumstances of your complaint, it will be handled through an investigation. We would encourage where possible for you to raise your complaint informally first so we can resolve it quickly, but if you wish to raise a complaint for investigation you can do so by:
Once you submit your complaint the Union will put someone in charge of investigating what you have raised. In particular we will take into account Strath Union's code of conduct to ensure that the investigation and outcome are in line with this.
Strath Union expects members and guests of the Union to engage in a positive manner in line with our Code of Conduct with students, staff, and visitors to the Union and University when engaged in use of the services and activities provided or when recognisable as a representative of the organisation.
Strath Union's disciplinary procedure lays out how the Union will handle reports of misconduct of individual members of the Union as well as that of Clubs and Societies and other relevant parties.
The Sports Union operates its own procedure related to Sports Union members and clubs which is available here.
