Your Union

By students, for students. The Students’ Unions is here to help you.

We're here to help you build the UWL community into something extraordinary that allows you to leave with something more than just a degree. 

What is an SU? 

First thing’s first, what is a Students’ Union? We are here to be your voice within UWL. We want to give you the best, most exciting and fun experience. We are here to make a difference for you. As soon as you enrol onto UWL, you automatically become a member of the SU, for free! 

On top of all the fun activities and opportunities to get involved with (which there are loads of!), we work to take students’ views to where they count. We want university to be an amazing place for you, where you feel included and excited to be involved. 

How we help you 

We work to give you opportunities. Opportunities to build a community, have your opinions heard and enact change. This can be through events, debates, sports, societies, and anything else you can think of! Take a look around our website to find out how we can help you. 

You can get your voice heard during your studies through our Course Reps, School Reps, university and us! If there’s anything you need, don’t hesitate to reach out to one of our team or your student representatives. 

Get involved 

Find out what UWLSU means to you by diving into student life. Grow your social life by coming along to events. Get fit by joining a sports team and joining gym classes. Meet people just like you through societies. The possibilities are endless!  

You can make a difference to how UWLSU is run by voting in at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) that takes place in the first semester each year. The Union is led by three Elected Officers voted for by you, the students, so keep your eye out for elections and get involved by either running for an Officer position or voting for your favourite candidates.
