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.

What Are You Involved In Outside Your Studies?
I was a dedicated member of the rugby team for 2nd and 3rd year and hope to re-join next semester. I’m also a member of the Muay Thai society, and I hope to participate in a few interclub fights next semester.
I am also the president and founder of Strath Foodsharing, a society to reduce food waste in Glasgow. So far, we’ve achieved to redistribute 300kgs of food - that would be wasted - to students for free, through a community fridge which was set up at the end of September.
I am usually involved in creative opportunities I see around Glasgow such as screen printing workshops and ceramic painting.
Tell Us More About Strath Foodsharing
I was inspired by a similar project I saw while on exchange. I decided I would do it and began preparation in the summer. I reached out and researched all the relevant contacts that could help me and I received a lot of support, especially from the Union and HUBBUB community fridges. I also got a lot of help from my flatmate – Maja - who is the secretary. After setting up the fridge, I invested a lot of time and effort to spread awareness and get partners to receive the food from.
It took a lot of effort and determination but I had a lot of support and amazing volunteers and friends who worked together to make it happen.
