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.

This is where you can request your volunteering certificates. If you've logged your volunteering hours on our website, you can request an annual Volunteering Hours Certificate, a Volunteering Achievement Record or a Reference Letter.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions and homeworking, we're currently only able to provide electronic copies of these documents.
You can expect to receive your documents within 7 working days (although we're normally quicker). Sometimes we may need additional information from you.
Your Volunteering Hours Certificate shows the total number of volunteering hours you have completed in one academic year. This includes any volunteering you have done over the summer (prior to the start of the year).

Your Volunteering Achievement Record shows all the volunteering you have taken part in over the course of your studies, including your roles of responsibility, hours logged per academic year and any awards you might have won or achieved - including the Skills Award (logged 20 hours and skills in 3 categories).
This is super handy when you're looking for graduate jobs, or even applying for further study. Because it's a more comprehensive document, we recommend that you request one at graduation but we're happy to provide one any time you need it.
Although not necessary, it is helpful if you give us details of awards you would like us to include.

You can also request a reference letter from us. Typically, this would be sent to you on headed paper with information confirming your roles of responsibility, involvement in volunteering and any hours or skills you logged.
If we've worked with you more closely (Welcome Team, Clubs Exec, Sports Exec, Faculty Rep, Student Trustees), we may be able to provide you with a more detailed reference. Please include any relevant information to help us compile the letter, including who the letter should be addressed to and names of staff members you worked with. This allows us to respond to you as quickly as possible.
