Membership

Every registered student is automatically a member of the University of Stirling Students' Union. This means you can benefit from the services and facilities that we provide ranging from academic support and representation, to the ability to join our many clubs and societies. The Union's offices and catering/bar facilities are handily located just off the Atrium area of the University.

ReFreshers fayre

Everyone remembers their first week at University. It’s your chance to find out about your new uni, meet new friends and discover what services and facilities are available to you, not only from the Union but from many University and local services. Every day during the week (which begins on Monday 15th January, through until Thursday 18th January) there are activities focused around you taking place in the Atrium area of the campus. The highlight is the Freshers Freebie Fayre on Monday 15th January when a host of companies will be on hand to provide lots of freebies to kick start your week!

Clubs and societies

The Union has over 80 Clubs and Socs which cater for a wide range of interests. Ranging from the big to the small, there literally is something for everyone be it the Drama Society or student Radio Station, Air3. Clubs are a great way to meet new friends and enhance your CV. Check out the club day during ReFreshers Week in the Atrium on Tuesday 16th January where you can sign up to the clubs of your choice or find out about the Give it a Go sessions to try before you buy!
