Students' Union

Welcome to Your Students’ Union! Everything that we do is aimed at making students’ lives better and in these pages we hope to give you just a taste of all of the things on offer from your Union to make your time at University the best it can be.

Students at Studio in the Students Union

Your Students’ Union is here to make your life at Stirling the best that it can be. We’re for all students, whether you’re a new undergraduate, postgraduate or studying from a different location. We're a social enterprise and registered charity - a separate organisation from the University of Stirling.

Student representation is the core of what we are as a Student Union and putting you, our members, at the heart of the decision-making process is vital to ensure that your interests are championed. Every year you elect student officers to represent your views, to be your voice to the University, to local government and to national policy makers. Through our sabbatical officers, module rep and faculty rep schemes we ensure your voice is heard and we work in partnership with the University to implement change.

We provide a huge range of student activities from events, Clubs and Societies and Sports teams to our Sustainability hub, the Green and Blue Space, and Community Garden. Getting involved with Your Union gives you the best opportunities to meet new people and do the things you love. We provide you with advocacy and support throughout your degree and even free sanitary products and condoms.

We know the welcome will be a little different this year, but don’t worry. We’re working on a range of online and on-campus activities and events, to make sure that however and whenever you begin your studies, you’ll feel part of the Stirling community.

During your first week you’ll not only have loads of fun activities to enjoy with our Freshers events, but you’ll also get to know our catering and bar outlets, Studio, Venue and Underground. There you can grab your favourite Starbucks coffee or enjoy our tasty fresh food, pizzas, pints and more in our award-winning spaces.

Check out the Union's website, FacebookTwitter and Instagram to ensure you know everything that's going on!

So prepare yourself for what’s set to be a week to remember. The Union is Your Union so above all, make the most of it and get involved.
