We are bold, we are friends, we are students: Be part of it!
We can't wait to welcome / welcome you back to Strathclyde next semester!
We're busy working on our plans for Welcome 2020, which this year will take place both online and on campus. We'll be following Government guidelines carefully and working with the University to make sure what we do is safe, and we'll make sure you can take part whether you are with us in person or joining us remotely.
WHO ARE WE?
So! You’ve completed your UCAS, smashed that interview, received your acceptance letter and here you are! Uni… Normally at this time, we’d be welcoming you through our doors for a number of events, interactions and information sessions. New pals aplenty and the, eh, occasional night out. Alas, in the current state, this is not to be… We remain ever hopeful though! That said, 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 is 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 Post-graduate students, so you have support on your return to higher education.
We are living the #Strathlife
New for 2020! We have just 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. #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.
