We are bold, we are friends, we are students: Be part of it!
Welcome to Strathclyde, welcome to Glasgow, welcome to Scotland. We’re glad you’re here!
For those who are returning to Strath, we say Welcome Back!
New year, new me? Let’s hope 2021 will be a contrast to 2020 and we can all be in a building at the same time… However! It’s not all doom and gloom, this is a new start after all.
Welcome. We are your Students’ Union, the hub for your clubs and societies, advice on academic and financial matters, making sure your voice is heard through representation and social space for you and your pals. There are of course more elements to what we do, but you’d be here all day reading this if we were to mention them all. Just have a quick scan through our website and find your people!
So! The first week in January would normally see a range of club and society sessions, 'getting to know you' moments, and of course, responsible social activities… why should this year be any different? We are working on a programme starting on the 18th of January, where you can meet our Clubs & Societies at our Students' Union Market Place, find out what we do and make new friends! All of these activities will be digital and this page will be updated with how that programme will look.
Hope you had an awesome break and welcome to the New Year!
WHO ARE WE?
We are the Strathclyde Students' Union. So what does that mean? What do we do? Let us explain:
We are fun
We have over 206 Clubs & Societies which means that there's something for absolutely everyone! Make new pals with similar interests and grow your Strath social circle.
We are Strathletes
Into Sports? Head over to the Sports Union section of our website and get more information about the vast array of clubs we have on offer.
We are the voice
Have a problem in class? Academic issues? Strathclyde Union is the home for all of your Student Representatives. We want to make sure that your issues are heard and taken seriously. Speak to your Rep and get that conversation going. You’re not alone. Feel you have something to say? Become a Rep!
We are leaders
Your Student Executive team are elected members of the student body, who work full time on key issues to make your lives better! Working with the University, they are a direct line of contact for change at a higher level. Want to know more? Drop them a line.
We are opportunities
We want you to be the best you can be! Providing additional training, CV tips and tricks, volunteer positions and of course living-wage-approved employment opportunities!
We are here for you
Look… everyone struggles sometimes and that’s totally fine! Need a hand with some academic work? Rent or financial issues? Just need some life advice? Feel free to contact the fabulous team at your Advice Hub. Happy to help, knowledgeable and just awesome.
We are a community
We have our doors (metaphorically at the moment) open to all students! There are specific associations for Mature and Postgraduate students, so you have support on your return to higher education.
We are living the #Strathlife
We have recently launched our student-led news section, Strath Life. We want your stories, your thoughts and all things Strath Life! Also featured are a variety of Deals and Discounts so you can save some money and a brand new student Survey section! #Studentlyf
We are nights out (and in!)
Ah the Union… For those who don’t know anything else about us, one thing you certainly know is the immortal phrase; “Fancy the Union for a pint?” We miss it, you miss it and hopefully, we can get things back to normal soon. Just so you know, The Union is a suitable venue for all kinds of events and activities, from lunch in our cafes to a drink after work. Poolhall, large spaces for gigs and clubs and loads of other places to socialise or study.
